Awakening from a long nightmare I’m afraid to go back to sleep.

Eight years ago I was in Mexico watching CNN.  They announced that Al Gore was president.  I went to sleep knowing that the candidate I preferred (yes even though libertarians may claim otherwise they do have preferences) would be president for at least four years.  When I woke the next morning George W had been crowned king.  Eight nightmarish years followed.

Today I voted as Richard Pryor suggested, “None of the above.”  But I did have a preference.  When it comes right down to it, when CNN announced that Obama was president-elect, I was relieved.  A long nightmare is ending.  A new one may begin tomorrow.  But for the moment I’m afraid to sleep, for fear that the results will change overnight.

Congratulations, Senator Obama.  Good luck America.  Hopefully in the morning the results will remain the same.

    Hi, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog site in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some
    overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!

    Other then that, superb blog!
