I doubt many folks come here for election news, and there are a lot of folks waxing Shakespearean around the web, so I'll spare you. Suffice it to say, it's a new day for America, one that has heartened me, and filled me with pride and relief. But there's an immense amount of work to do, and the new administration will need our patience, our support, and perhaps most importantly, our resolve to hold them to the best of American ideals. Their mettle must match our hope.

But before getting down to the hard work of governance, it's worth exhaling and savoring the moment. Yesterday, WFMU spent an hour playing 14 different versions of Sam Cooke's "A Change is Gonna Come," and you can hear them all here. A towering, utterly indestructible song.
