On another note, there are people driving down Washington St. in Roslindale beeping their horns. On the way home from work, we passed a small gang group of "urban" youths standing at a bus stop waving and whooping and pumping their fists in the air at the cars going by. I have to say, I'm quite impressed. I think it's safe to assume that this is an unprecedented event for a presidential election. I guess people just missed their World Series chance this year. It's impressive that young, somewhat disenfranchised people are getting as excited about this as they would be about a big sports win.

I loved how excited people were by the election results. :) One friend who had been home alone that night told me she walked to Harvard Square just so she could celebrate with others.
