exit through the rear door

London telephone box

London seems in shock. I've been catching up on Brexit articles this morning, as I hadn't paid much attention to the referendum till yesterday, not thinking an EU exit would actually happen. It's strange as an outsider from the New World to see this Old-World island country—or rather, set of island countries dominated by a post-colonial economic power—not identify as part of the continent of Europe with allied goals. (Weren't any lessons learned from World Wars I and II?) The difference between southern England and northern France only stems from plate techtonics, shiftings of rock below the surface ages ago. But maybe that's much easier to see from the distance of a North American hitched to Canada and Mexico.

For giggles amid earthshaking news, read here. I'm off for some fresh air.
