Too delicious.

The Independent: "At their home in a comfortable, quiet Seattle suburb, Mike Teller and his partner Bob Vesely will not be cheering today."

VeselĂ˝ in Czech means "cheerful". It's not an uncommon name. I wish, but no doubt in vain, that the journalist was having a little fun there.

The pair mentioned are now flying a Canadian flag in protest and are about to take the drastic step of emigrating to Canada to escape the hostility and intolerance they perceive in the US as a result of Bush's election.

Of course Seattle is about as liberal blue as liberal blue cities come, and the two gentlemen are probably moving to Vancouver which is about a two hour drive north and as nearly a carbon copy of Seattle as one city can be of another.

Apart from that, bravo guys. Way to take a stand.
