“I know no country in which there is so little independence of mind and freedom of discussion as in America.” Alexis de Tocqueville

The day after Obama's victory, I had the novel idea of going out and buying a few newspapers. You know, purchasing a little piece of history that I can pass on someday. Little did I know, several million people had the same novel idea. Someday, Ebay is going to be swamped with copies of the New York Times featuring news of Obama's win. Oh well, I still have a Hungarian coin from 1618 that a local coin dealer tells me is worth about a buck. Maybe in four hundred more years it will be worth two.
