Witnessing History

I suspended work on my blocks tonight and sat glued to the TV and CNN, fingers and toes crossed that Americans would do the right thing. And they did, thank God.

I moved to Canada when I was ten and, from the first moment when I actually started thinking about such things, I've been proud to be Canadian. Specifically, proud to be Canadian in contrast to, and distinct from, being American. Tonight, for the first time in a long time, I think it must feel pretty damn good to be American. Kudos to all those who got out there and voted.

This is a day of great significance and magnitude in so many ways and on so many levels.
