Get out there and vote!

Today is the day! Today is the culmination of a very historic election season and I'm pretty excited about it. Unless a total catastrophe happens it appears that it will be Barack Obama. I've never seen people so energized for an election in my lifetime. I'll be at work when history takes place, but rest assured I'll have my eyes glued on the many TV sets in the newsroom. I think I'll call my father (if he's still up) tonight. He is a veteran of the Civil Rights era and watched as the world morned the assination of Martin Luther King. He told me that he would never see a black person elected president in his lifetime. I hope that he's wrong tonight.
