"Bunny and I peeled off from the funereal cortege as it snaked its way from the Jacob K. Javits Center. It was 2:00 am November 9, 2016. We had been on our feet since 6:00 p.m. the previous night, when we had set out to celebrate the election of the nation's first woman to become president of the United States and to watch the metaphorical shattering of the glass ceiling at the Javits Center."
