It's November 5, and Barack Hussein Obama was just elected the 44th President of the United States of America.
I made my way from Greenwich Village uptown to home in Inwood, and passed many crowds. There was shouting and whooping, there was drinking, and there was some necking going on too. I saw white people in Harlem celebrating and people of all colors everywhere in Manhattan generally having a good time.
In Kenya, there's a woman who can say that her grandson was just elected the President of the United States.
Today is a good day.
