Another kind of surge
(or what I did while waiting for the results)

The following comment was reported on a New York Times blog.
I stayed up to watch the American Election results and the speeches. Given all the reports about the turnout and the queues, it felt like it was going to be kind of momentous.
Overheard in a North Carolina polling place line:
“How long have you been waiting?”“About 200 years…”
What I heard just a little while ago were two extraordinarily gracious and memorable speeches. It was worth the wait!
