I survived my day as an election journalist. Started Tuesday at 5:00am; got home at 11:55pm. I am exceedingly pleased that Senator Obama has been elected to the presidency. I worked hard to keep my inclinations out of my reportage (as a card-carrying member of the media "elite").
I have two more drawings to scan and upload--both post-voting scenes. I'll deal with them tomorrow. But the long and short of it is this: 21 total drawings, a dozen finished today.
More tomorrow. In the meantime, enjoy George Caleb Bingham's account of another Missouri election, this one in 1846.
Time for bed...
