A Change is Gonna Come

Out of consideration for my small but select readership I have refrained from commenting on current events but today is an exception to commend the American electorate for rejecting the warrior caste in favour of reason and decency. Two stains have been washed out of the American flag – the stain of slavery and racism and the stain of callous military aggression. Obama’s speech last night in Chicago could have been written by Sam Cooke and Curtis Mayfield with the assistance of Pete Seeger and Bruce Springsteen. The days of the ancien regime are numbered and America is reborn.
