Best Decision I Ever Made.

One day after Election Day seems like an appropriate time to discuss decisions, for better and for worse. My vote, actually cast weeks ago via an absentee ballot- apparently on the rise in my native New Jersey- was for better, judging by the results blasted towards me and anyone else vaguely in touch with a television, radio, or newspaper as of 8pm last night.
