Following on from Obama winning the election, I have decided not to post a pick of the day that is specifically about his victory. This is simply because there are so many souvenirs in the paper today that have vast amounts of brilliantly written pieces, it would be wrong to go for just one. Instead, I think that Brian Reade's account of a Klu Klux Klan member is powerful; not so much in the way it is written, but purely for the shock value that this mentality is still present in states like Alabama. He also sums up the article nicely in my opinion. See what you think.
