There Is No Joy in Mudville

by Pa Rock

The sun has risen on the final morning of the Obama administration, and with its passing go the hopes of millions.

Inauguration Day, a time of change, and this time the results can't be laid at the feet of Democracy, for indeed, Democracy gave a different result.  This time we have done it to ourselves with our arcane election rules, our insoluble racism, our penchant for mindless thunder, and our instinctual desire to stomp sandcastles and the dreams that sustain them.

All in all, it's a good day to go back to bed.
