Sadly, it doesn't surprise me that this took place in MS. Pearl is the place where the first school shootings took place back in the 90's as well.
Truthfully though, everyone (ok, not exactly everyone) but a lot more people around here than I expected are as thrilled as I am.
PT, I understand where you are coming from, but you have to admit that Obama is a far better person than McCain. And I would really like to live in optimism for a while.
Even the mock election my 2nd grader had had Obama win by a large margin. And, as he is proud to note as well, Kids Pick the President (by Nickelodeon) also chose Obama.
I think he is thoughtful and intelligent and I am really excited about the prospect of not having a bumbling fucking moron in the WH. I would like to spend a few days a week not worried sick about what may happen next.
Damn, that was way off topic...sorry Cath, didn't mean to hijack.
