The (election) party's over -- time to get to work

This is a good day to remember that Americans can do great things when we work together. Here are some good suggestions from numero uno populist Jim Hightower:

Here’s an idea: Instead of wasting our tax money on Wall Street slicks who don’t use it to help anyone but themselves, why don’t we use our public funds to build something in America? Like what? Like bridges that are in disrepair, schools and libraries that need upgrades and expansion, high-speed rail networks to connect our population centers, energy-saving technologies for every home and building, public transportation for all of our cities, state-of-the-art internet systems everywhere, and public park repairs and expansions. America has important work that needs to be done. America also has millions of workers who need good jobs. Let’s combine the two needs so we can lift our country up and move forward together.
