What an amazing day it was! President Barack was radiant, a smile so genuine and deep it could not be contained, spilling out, tickling everyone's tears of joy and amazement back to the corridors of history past. Today was a day for Big Things, Profound Things. To those of us who remember water fountains labeled "Black" and "White", of rage spilling red on streets, of darkened hearts and poison words, this day is Big.
And so was Aretha's hat! Oh, I loved it! It captures the utter joy of the day. Tomorrow's tomorrows will be enough time to reorder jubilation into narrow channels of opinion. Today, I'll enjoy The Hat.
