Congratulations

I'm very tired right now after staying up far too late to see the election results. It was certainly worth the feeling of being half asleep today. Here in NY, Democratic victories were especially strong.

And yet I feel something of a loss.

I had an oportunity today to see how the other side views the results. It saddened me to see not only how divided the country is, but the vitriol with which these feelings are asserted. I have no illusions that Americans will ever be on the same page with respect to the significant issues that confront us. Such uniformity would be unnatural and unhealthy.

But simple respect should be the norm, not a notable exception.
