Originally pointed to this Guardian Shortcuts page by VoxPolitics for the first article: " "We usually think of the Bush campaign as being incredibly cynical," says Ana Marie Cox [...] "But maybe they're just hopelessly optimistic. Maybe they really do just believe in the good of all people.""

But then realised that the second article is good too: "Yesterday's silence, coordinated across the continent is, I fear, part of a trend to nationalise our emotional lives. [,,,] There is also a kind of commemoration inflation which devalues some losses and places a premium on others."
