Waiting for the Vicious

It appears that yesterday's projections were in error -- Hamas gained control of the majority of the Palestinian parliament in the recent election. This is tragic -- it is the worst possible timing, and almost guarantees disaster -- Hamas is uninterested in peace. Fatah is uninterested in coalition, and is trying to sidestep the government. I fully sympathise with the decision of most governments not to deal with a Hamas government.

In a (probably unrelated) problem, I made an error in Bioinformatics today, having forgotten my classes-fu and writing an essay on a quiz where a short answer was called for, and thus lacking time to handle the other questions. Argh. At least the quizzes are extra credit. Meh.
