And now we can all, Exhale
As exciting as this historic inauguration has been, as uplifting as it has been to share the laughter and the tears; as wonderful as it is to know that we, as a country, will be renewed to be that shining light to the world again; as glorious as all of that is; for me personally the real joy is the sheer relief I feel tonight. Tonight, at long last, I will not go to sleep with lingering angst over what horror the morning will bring.

No, national forests will not be sold off in the middle of the night. No, workers will be exposed to hazardous chemicals with the blessing of the Labor Secretary. No, there will not be any canyons bulldozed and filled in order to keep the scary Mexicans away. No, endangered species will not be imperiled.

The Bush era is over. It is done.

Sleep well.
