Fallout of the Ukranian election

This has the potential to get really ugly.

"We have received information that authorities want to destroy our tent city at 3 a.m. ... At two o'clock there should be more of us than now," Yushchenko said, speaking to supporters at Kiev's Independence Square, in remarks quoted by Reuters.

"We must defend every chestnut tree, every tent. We must show to the authorities we are here for a long time.... There must be more and more of us here every hour."

and some possible scenarios from Reuters, including this one:

Western Ukraine declares some sort of autonomy because it refuses to recognize Yanukovich as president.

By my estimation, 3AM in Kiev is about 9PM here in Philly. Sit tight and see what happens.
