In a Nov. 4 Herald article, “Four more years met with joy, ire” I was quoted responding to a question about the difference between how California votes and how the country at large votes. My answer, possibly too flip, was however the result of my frustration over the number of people who cast a vote having been poorly informed or misled about the Bush administration’s failures and deflections, coupled with a feeling of pride about California’s higher education system and our well-informed electorate. I can understand why some readers coming across my quote misunderstood my intentions.
California also chose a Republican Governor. Put the foot back and shut the heck up.
