As a history buff I relish the prospect of living through monumental events. Last night was one of them. What progress this country has made. I remember growing up thinking that black people were inferior. That the family had to move because "they" were moving in. I lived through the sixties in New York and knew better then to venture into the wrong neigborhoods. I recommend the movie Bronx Tales to get a good picture of what racial paramenters were when I was a young man. Last night was a true earthquake. I believe that Barack Obama has the potential to be a great president. We are all (even for those that are dispairing this morning) better-off because last night happened.
