Another Election Update

Just came back from teaching in the Bronx.
My students are so excited and preoccupied with the election that I had to let them go a little early.  They are all thrilled at the prospect of winning, and these are folks who are not used to winning much, especially in politics.  They had lots of stories of lines at the polls as early as 5AM and of lots of people young and old who are voting for the first time.  They are very excited at the prospect of a president who looks like them.
Can't say I blame them.
