    I've read some people are saving it for noon tomorrow.

    I listened this morning. I sniffled a bit.

    There was an article in the New York Times about how Obama's administration handled the mail, and it's amazing. I don't see Trump continuing the 10LAD plan. I wouldn't be surprised if they just burned it all.

    President Obama just commuted Chelsea Manning's sentence. She'll now be released in May of this year, rather than in 2045.
    She's free.

    Chelsea Manning: Wikileaks source freed from prison
    US soldier Chelsea Manning has been released from prison after serving seven years for leaking hundreds of thousands of diplomatic cables and military files to Wikileaks.

    A US Army spokesperson confirmed to the BBC that she had left Fort Leavenworth military prison in Kansas.

    Most of what remained of her 35-year sentence was commuted by then-US President Barack Obama in January.

    Her lawyer earlier said she was excited but likely "anxious".

    "She's ready to finally be able to live as the woman that she is," Nancy Hollander told the BBC. The 29-year-old soldier was born Bradley Manning.

    A day after she was sentenced to 35 years in prison in 2013, Manning said she had felt female since childhood and wanted to live as a woman called Chelsea.

    "For the first time, I can see a future for myself as Chelsea," she said in a statement last week ahead of her release. "I can imagine surviving and living as the person who I am and can finally be in the outside world."
    Don't look at the responses to tweets from news sources announcing her release. It's not healthy.
    Maybe for once, someone will call me "Sir" without adding, "You're making a scene."
