One Post-Election Observation

The mood in Washington D.C. over the last twelve hours has been a rising tide of jubilation cresting to a general demeanor of cheerfulness. People are greeting each other on the Metro with a politeness I've never seen here, and last night would spontaneously start to whop, starting a contagion that would spread across their fellow passengers. There's only one other time I've experienced anything like it - Chapel Hill, after UNC won the national championship.

And speaking of which, will the folks back home finish counting their ballots, please?
