The fruits of victory

>

I’m no fan, but a lot of my fellow citizens are very happy today and I think that is a good thing.

Last night at the University of Miami college football game, a black woman who was selling me something, said the following after pleasantries; “My heart’s not here, I wish I was watching Obama, but I gotta work.” As I was leaving, I grabbed [gently] her arm and told her, ‘ to remember tonight and try to enjoy all that’s coming.’  At times, it’s hard not to feel good for someone like her.

But most of the time, the fear for the country comes first.
