The Verdict

There were no disturbances on the street in Monrovia today, as some had feared, others had predicted, and even a few had hoped for.

There was a small crowd around the Daily Talk on Tubman Boulevard, where a crowd of young Taylor-sympathizers brought some clever signs, some alarming t-shirts, and the inevitable shrine to Papay Ghankay himself in the form of an oversized poster:

Just after the verdict was read a continent away, really immediately coinciding with it, a rainbow formed a halo around the sun. This lasted about an hour, perhaps more. I've now read international journalists' reporting positive and negative divinations of this rare astrological phenomenon.
