the headlines


as kansas went red last night, you would have never known it had you been in lawrence. immediately after the big announcement our little city exploded into cheers, honks, and songs of joy that lasted well into the wee hours of the morning :)

Curious Art said...

YAY! Your circles seem to embody the new spirit of unity & inclusiveness...

Really enjoying your other posts too.

oh! yes, there were fireworks, too - come to think of it, the reaction was reminiscent of the national championship back in april, except there were no beer bottles and bar glasses in our front yard the next morning.

Gorgeous capture of the dizzying excitement Tuesday night (and well beyond.) And can I squeal a little about Ohio going blue (including my own Hamilton County for the first time since Lyndon Johnson!)? Krissy, I'm waiting on Missouri right with you-- it's my Mom's home state and I'm pulling for it to keep up its bellwether status.

Oh what a week!!!

Katrina said...

How exciting to witness such a historical event. I can only imagine all the celebrations going on in our nation. I saw this collection of headlines, but I like yours a thousands time better: http://obama2008.s3.amazonaws.com/headlines.html
