First African-American to become U.S. president crosses requisite 270-electoral vote threshold.

UPDATE: Based on Barack's acceptance speech Zuma Dogg says Barack's policy most likely will end up bankrupting the Country and turning the U.S. into something we have never seen before...BUT HIS STRENGTH WILL BE HIS EARLY PRESIDENCY WILL BE GOOD FOR MORAL OF THE COUNTRY. That's because the people who are so enthralled with the persona of Obama will be so giddy and morally uplifted, if will be a good feeling out there on the streets. Kinda like having Leo Decaprio on the Titanic as it's going down. But seriously, I'm happy that a lot of people are really happy and I think it's going to be an artificial "uplifted" feeling out there. Time for a little Martha and the Vandellas...

One measure of interest that we'll be voting on is to allow the city to have an independent monitor oversee the Los Angeles Fire Department who would be responsible for auditing and reviewing the department's complaints against sworn and civilian employees, according to wire reports. Issues around the department arose when a culture of hazing and inappropriate behavior were brought to the public's attention.
