In Seattle, everyone seemed
ready to either celebrate or riot.
We gathered in JedLiz's basement
to watch The Daily Show projected

stapled to the wall. The news was

It made a very happy birthday for
Sarah. The champagne flowed and
we pounded on drums in the rock-
out room. Upstairs in the kitchen,
Matt swilled bourbon from a jug.
I said, Drink like a normal person! 
and poured the equivalent of three
shots into a deepish 6-inch plate.

got the bright idea to set them aflame.
