Oh my God. Oh my God. Oh my God. This is better. Much better.
Here is the text of my 65-year-old father's message to me tonight. He's in Vermont, three hours ahead:
"Hi Sam. It's your dad. It's whatever time. Sometime after midnight on a very historic evening. I'm very happy. I just, I feel like--I know you are too--so I just wanted to say hi and say the world got to be a better place tonight. Anyway, I love you and I'll talk to you soon. Bye."
Amen. Man, am I ready for this. Hallelujah.
