Comes from some other beginning's end. I joked at the Provention concert that "Closing Time" could easily be about the end of a presidential administration, with the old regime being bounced at the end of the night. Well, I was kinda serious, of course, and now we get to test out my and a lot of people's idea for how to do it.
I am glad to be able to breathe again now that the election is over, and I confess to feelings of optimism and hope for a fresh start. Fixing what needs to be fixed in our country is not a one-party job, and I do hope that this is the message our leaders have received.
