A gentle evening, in contrast
Dina and I were, despite all polls, anticipating election nights like the preceding two, where any hope of resolution was delayed, and tension distributed to all election watchers. This year, I was determined to enjoy the evening, and poured something light for the both of us to sip while listening to analyses. Historians will write page upon page about tonight, what it signifies, and so on; my toast is to the many states, Secretaries of State, and election workers who ran their polling and counting with great predictability and competence—the best of attributes. Thanks.
We roused the kids to listen to both of tonight’s speeches. Congratulations to the candidates, the President-elect, and the country.
