The Morning After

Barack Obama was elected President last night!

No need to say history was made, here is a glimpse:  this morning I stopped by Starbucks on the way to work.  Beside the usual cup of coffee, I wanted to grab a copy of The New York Times.  I normally get my news on the internet, but today I wanted to hold them in my hands and keep them for posterity.  To my surprise, I was met by an empty news shelf.  At 8:30 am, the newspapers were all gone.  So I went to another coffee house, and another...  The story was the same.  I even went to Borders and searched newspaper dispensers around town.  Not only The New York Times were sold out, so were Washington Post, and San Francisco Chronicles...  It's as if everyone knew and wanted to capture and preserve the historic day that was Today!
