Last night, history on a variety of levels was made when Illinois senator Barack Obama was voted in as the 44th President of the United States, dethroning a moron who for two long terms has made mess of just about everything. I'm usually not the maudlin type, but today I'm joining in the revery that the boys could be born into a better world...or at least the chance of one. Sure, it'll be all up to Lidia and I regardless of who lives at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue ("the address that changes all the rules!"), or what's-his-name at 24 Sussex Drive for that matter, but today, "yes I can" makes me feel a little more confident about serving out my term for the next...oh...40 years?
