Inaugural thoughts

  • As happy as I am that we can now say President Obama, the whole inauguration seems silly to me. The whole thing smacks of coronation. Also, it produces a lot of garbage.
  • I try not to take pleasure in the pain of others, but wow: Dick Cheney in a wheelchair. Not only did that lead to Tom Brokaw comparing him to Dr. Strangelove, he also invited comparisons to Blofeld and Mr. Potter from It's a Wonderful Life.
  • I know Aretha Franklin had a great hat on, but let's not forget about George H. W. Bush. (The H. W. stands for HNanook of the WNorth.)
  • I'm not religious, but I'd love to spend time in Joseph Lowery's church.
