New Day

My site has been down intermittently today, so I wasn’t able to link to the news that Barack Obama has won the Democratic nomination. For those of you who are not won over to the young senator from Illinois, let me just say that there’ll be plenty of time to be skeptical. But for now why not enjoy this historic day? One hundred and forty five years after the Emancipation Proclamation, and forty five years after “I Have a Dream,” an African American has become his party’s nominee for the presidency of the United States. That is reason to rejoice.
