I'm glad the guy I was going to vote for (he dropped out hours before I voted) has decided to endorse the guy I did:
Former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards will endorse Barack Obama tonight at a campaign event in Grand Rapids. The endorsement comes more than three months after Edwards dropped out of the race for the Democratic nomination, asking the two remaining candidates to make poverty a central issue of the general election.
And then, in about 250 days and 18 hours, Obama will become the 45th President of the United States.
In other good news, the Chicago Transit Authority has accelerated a major construction project that affects the El stations nearest where I live:
Service on two southbound tracks will resume in late December at the Fullerton and Belmont stations serving the Red, Brown and Purple/Evanston Express lines. ... Work was originally set to wrap up by June 30, 2009, but the CTA decided to spend $1.6 million to expedite the construction schedule, CTA President Ron Huberman said.
