Yes We Can!

I stood last night at Castaways (a local bar in Ithaca) with my friends and we watched Barack Obama win this historical election. Amazing! Watching the students from Spelman College and the people at Ebenezer Baptist Church - this has been a long time coming!


  1. I was at a bar, too. And it was packed! Is this something some people do every four years? because it seemed strange to me.

  2. I don't know, maybe they do. I was in New York in the fall of 1996, when Clinton won for the second time, and I don't remember any kind of celebration like this. In fact, I've never seen anything like this in my life before.
