CAN WE NOW STOP HAVING IMPORTANT EVENTS THAT MATTER TO NORTH EAST OHIOANS THAT LAST UNTIL ALL HOURS OF THE NIGHT?

The alarm went off this morning and I knew I had a precious number of minutes before I would start the onslaught of talking about the you-know-what yesterday.  In peace I prayed my Liturgy of the Hours, took a shower, and then took Sebastian for a walk.  There we ran into a couple of fellow dog walkers and their dogs and just guess what was the topic of discussion.

When we got back, the newspaper was proclaiming election results.  I turned on my computer - well, you can guess what went on there.


Some friends are gloating, some are licking wounds.  There is the possibility that an already divided nation can become even more so (and I would have said this no matter who won.)  Now is not the time to put all of our political activity on a shelf for another four years.  Let us remain concerned and involved.  Let us start the real work:
