yes, for shame, this is my first vote in a presidential election. ben & i are at coptix's office with about 70 other people watching the final countdown, the west coast polls closing in less than a minute. pizza, beer & many laptops (95% of them macbooks, surprise, surprise) abound.
wow. barack obama 284, john mccain 146. no matter how you feel about those numbers, this has been the longest election and it is finally over. frankly, i'm relieved. i admit the tenor of this campaign fight has worn me out. maybe i'm a wimp. but honestly, i just want my brother home.
