Reporter Shaun Byron and Video Editor Andrew DuPont sound-off on whatever is on their minds, from politics to pop-culture, from movies to the main stream media. Local, national, world-wide? If it's in the media mix, these two are sure to have an opinion on it.

The Purple States of America

I'm writing this now because I don't want anyone to think I am doing this because "my guy" won.

No matter who wins on Nov. 4, this country needs to get behind them. The last two elections have deeply polarized this country, so much so that terms like "blue state" and "red state" may as well mean Mars and Venus. No matter who our President is, we are all part of this country and need to work together for the good of all of us. No doubt there will some gloating from whatever side wins while the others wring their hands in protest, but it has to stop there.

The politics of late do nothing to help solve our nation's problems, it creates new ones. The idea that if "your candidate" wins, everything will be perfect, but if "the other guy" wins, the world will end seems to be permeating so many aspects of this election it's disgusting. Despite what some of the attacks ads may imply, I have no doubt both Obama and McCain want good things for the people of this nation, they just disagree on how to achieve those things.

Regardless of who wins, we have to stop looking at people who voted for someone else as the enemy and be the United States we once were.
