A new day dawns

It's morning again in America. Today more men and women will go to work with a lighter heart than ever before in our country's history. With the elimination of the Yankees from the playoffs, we're seeing the end of a dynasty, the fall of an empire, and the rise of a new era. With the fate of Joe Torre all but sealed in the Bronx, Americans can rejoice in not having to see his mournful visage on their tvs - nor watch Alex Rodriguez' preening. This Friday afternoon, men and women will turn on their tv sets, and they can look forward with confidence to the future of the Red Sox. It's morning again in America, and under the leadership of Terry Francona, our team is prouder and stronger and better. Why would we ever want to return to where we were less than four short years ago?
