Our ability to stay awake

Quote for the day:
One of the great liabilities of history is that all too many people fail to remain awake through great periods of social change. Every society has its protectors of the status quo and its fraternities of the indifferent who are notorious for sleeping through revolutions. But today our very survival depends on our ability to stay awake, to adjust to new ideas, to remain vigilant and to face the challenge of change. -- Martin Luther King, Jr.
Aah...our very survival depends on our ability to stay awake i.e. to take the 3am call! :)

but Hillary dear: Neither you nor Obama should be taking the 3am call. It should be the person that's awake. :) Like Conan O'Brien pointed out some days back:
"Are you getting a little more excited about the presidential race now? ... Remember when it was 140 people running for president and you didn't know who they were? Now we're down to three. And the latest is Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and John McCain. They've all been arguing, claiming that they're the most qualified person to answer the White House phone at 3am. McCain said, 'I'm the most qualified, because I'm usually up at that hour peeing anyway.'"
