Beyond election day

Bob Herbert hits it out of the park.

I'm in a state of agitated hopefulness today; can't really concentrate on anything but the election. I cried a little when I filled in the oval next to Obama's name this morning. Voting felt good and important again, for the first time in a truly long time. I felt like a citizen instead of a victim.

I'm full of hope.

My blog post expresses the same feelings today.

Yes, those are the words for it, agitated hopefulness.

That was a good editorial. We do need to realize that we can't fall back into complacency.
