The Moment

I don't watch television very often. In fact, I watch it so infrequently that I keep the set hidden away in a closet for most of the year. It only comes out at times of national disaster or an election. In this case, it was the latter -- happily -- as I wheeled the thing out to catch Barack Obama's speech in Iowa with the memorable words, "This was the moment when it all began".
