Martin Luther King said these words in a speech the day before he was killed:
Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I'm not concerned about that now. I just want to do God's will. And He's allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I've looked over. And I've seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the promised land!
Maybe....just maybe, we have arrived on the shores of that unexplored promised land. We shall explore that land for the next four years.
True fact: McCain and Palin spent the evening in the Barry Goldwater suite at the Biltmore Hotel in Phoenix. Wasn't it a bit of a jinx to wait for a republican candidate for president to watch the returns in the Goldwater suite? I mean, that's really tempting fate.
Yvonne Colodny is your newest Circuit Court Judge and Harvey Ruvin retains his job as clerk. No surprise in either of those two races. Congratulations to both.
OBAMA'S FIRST DECISIONS: It should come as no surprise that having won the presidency, Obama has announced that 1) He is indeed a Muslim; 2) That he intends to pass a law prohibiting people from standing during the national anthem or wearing an American Flag pin in their lapel; 3) He will be appointing most of the surviving members of the 1960's Black Panthers leadership to his cabinet; 4) And in the most outrageous move of all, because he believes in a socialist form of government, he will spend almost a trillon dollars of US Taxpayers money to bail out failing banks and businesses on Wall Street. (Wait....that has already been done by a Republican administration.) Well, anyway, lets not let facts get in the way of Republicans calling him a Socialist.
