Time for a new deal
Well, it's that election. The one that affects everybody in the world -- especially in the Western world. I'm not going to say anything about it because, after all, what's left to say? And in any case, like most of the people whose lives will be changed by the result, I don't get a vote. So I'll pass the mic to US citizen and onetime conservative H P Lovecraft, writing here to Catherine L Moore in 1936. It gives a hint of how HPL's experiences towards the end of his life changed his political views from the reactionary periwigged libertarianism usually associated with him. There's hope for us all, however deplorable.
