Just like the old days, I stayed up late last night to see how things were going to look with the morning sun. In honor of the change that it appears we will see, I have included one of my favorite sunsets instead of one of my traditional sunrises. This picture is of the sun going down over the White Oak River, nearly Emerald Isle, NC.
I hope this is the sunset of unaccountable government, but i know that the folks elected yesterday are still politicians so I will not get my hopes up too high.
My Canadian dwelling college roommate bet me five dollars that there would be no change in the US House. He cannot be blamed for his lack of political savvy. He hails from Massachusetts and lives in Nova Scotia where they have seen some of the first signs of winter already. Unfortunately I cannot celebrate my victory since he appears to be dodging me on the Internet this morning. I can remember seeing moths fly out of his wallet once so I am not surprised that he is hard to find this morning.
It is nice to see people demanding accountability in government even if it is a few years late. Perhaps the President will take this opportunity to make some changes and at least create some successes in his last few years in office. That might even temper history's view of him, but somehow I doubt that will happen on either front.
