Wow. It's hard to believe it's finally here. Today, a big day, a huge day, really - a monumental event, if you'll indulge a gal a little well-meant hyperbole.
It's something that this country has been waiting for since that dark day in 2004, when fate handed us something so shockingly unacceptable and asked us to stand behind it, to support an agenda we couldn't possibly believe in, and to watch as everything we knew and loved came predictably crashing down.
Yes, this is a day that will go down in history as the day that we, the people, were finally heard, and our country - nay, the world - belatedly got what they had been so desperately seeking: Britney Spears is divorcing Kevin Federline.
It's been a long time coming, to be sure. Two long years, in fact. And now, we will rise up in vindication at justice finally being served, as a girl (still not yet a woman, IMHO) who happens to be a fabulous dancer (not so much at the singing) finally comes to her senses and does what we all know to be the right thing.
It's a good day, this first Tuesday in November, and a little celebration is certainly in order. I feel like there was something else going on today, but I can't really remember what.
In any case, if you want to know where to find me, I'll be out on the town, pounding the pavement to bring stories of this democratic victory to the people. In a land this free, a home this brave, it's the least I can do.
