February always has marked a special time for me on the calendar. Not because my mom celebrates her birthday this month. And no, I'm not talking about Valentine's Day, even though we all have to give Cupid props from time to time. February is Black History Month. When I was in college, I used to get really into it. One year I changed my Facebook profile picture to a different black leader every day. Why the excitement? It's something about history that gets me charged up. All history, really.

In the case of losing presidential merchandise, however, the results aren't always so kind. The Postcard Factory, which produced election swag for both candidates, destroys whatever is left from the losing side.
