06:10 pm - A nice sort of "thank you" quote
For frozencapybara, gizmoek, rhysara, sauergeek, bouncingleaf, jehanna, lizzielizzie, jagheterlelle and everyone else who attended the Sunday-midnight vigil at Cambridge City Hall:
Jes Shuford and Shannon Andrews seemed momentarily stunned by the thousands of jubilant well wishers waiting to greet them as they bounded down the steps of Cambridge City Hall at 1:30 a.m. Monday morning.… "Hearing all those people cheering really makes it sink in," said Shuford, a 28-year-old masseuse from neighboring Somerville. "That's not something that normally happens in my life."

Newsweek, 18 May 2004
Reading this, I feel that much better about the sore throat I woke up with on Monday morning.  :-)

There was a blurb on MTV about this last night. It was really nice to see. I looked for you but didn't see you in the crowd shots.

My officemate commented that besides the obvious reasons for being happy about this, she quite enjoyed seeing news headlines that were uplifting rather than the normal shock and horror.
