It's been an extremely grueling election cycle and in its aftermath some are celebrating and others are mourning. Unfortunately, an end to the election hasn't translated into an end to the arguments. Today I have absolutely nothing profound to offer. It just isn't the day.

Maybe tomorrow we could all go out for ice cream.
