    Looks like there is a bunch of election parties going on.

    I stopped by the Times this evening and the staff said that Greg is blowing it out as well. There is possible street closing a couple hundred volunteers coming in and getting down.

    I’ll most certainly stop by there tomorrow.

    This could be real nuts from what I understand.

    The intersection of Hargett and Wilmington tonight was a positive riot of joy, validation, and community. I actually doubled back from my car to get a second helping of what truly seemed to be a moment in history worth embedding for life. What a night. What a sound. What a sight.

    I think this election has been more life-history making for me then even 911!

    I agree with rv. After leaving the raucous and emotional dem party at the Marriot and yelling in unison with the Shaw students filling the streets, I couldn’t resist driving through several times honking with the others. The energy was impossible to leave. It felt like a dream, which I imagine is what many others have felt when they have found themselves part of a distinct and profound moment in history.
