Comments

I hate hedge and disclaimer-filled writing, so I saved these two for the comments:
1. Does someone who supported the war all along deserve to take more joy in Hussein's downfall? Well, yeah.
2. Am I comparing myself, who did approximately nothing to take Hussein out of power, to the 19th century abolitionists? Of course not. Just pointing out that people who disagree with the means can still be happy with the good endsd.

There seems to be a common taste for 19th century songs on this blog, at least among the bloggers themselves. :)

What has been frustrating today has been watching how people like Atrios and Instapundit have been using the wonderful news to say things other than 'This is wonderful', which surely should be the only thing to do today.

For once, let's all just be united on this being A Really, ReallyReallyReally, Good Thing. Getting into discussions can wait.

No, they really can't, though, can they? I find that a real shame. I wish everyone could just kick back and breath a sigh of relief for 24 hours. The world needs more of that.

Some of your readers, too. If it was possible to wear out a CD, my soundtrack from Ken Burns' Civil War miniseries would be long gone.

Yeah, but The Ashoken Farewell (the best of that ambum) is a relatively recent song (last 20 years).

Whoa... watch out! I'm getting all partisan here ;)

Better than Lorena? Or Marching Through Georgia? Or Bonnie Blue Flag? And what about All Quiet Along the Potomac, or, or ...

I'm a big fan of Jay & Molly, and even considered going to their summer music camp at one time, but spc67, if you are saying that Ashokan Farewell is superior to Angel Band, one of my all-time favorite songs, well, suh, there may be consequences!

How about this, in honor of Got Saddam Day, I will tolerate you calling Ashokan Farewell first among equals on the album, while only slightly grumbling under my breath.

Sullivan Ballou's letter may have been read over Ashokan Farewell, but he probably wrote it while someone was humming Lorena.

Harrumph. :)
