The First Step

Congratulations, America.  Thanks to everyone who voted.  Regardless of who you voted for, you made a difference.  Change has already begun, and many people agree that’s a good thing.  There is still a lot of work to do, still many challenges in the world, and there will certainly be some rough times ahead.  Most of the problems we face are too big to be fixed by only one man or one political party.  So we have to do this together. 

Today, let’s have a little party.  Some songs (OK, one: Blowfly) not safe for work.
