A Brief Time Out for Grumping
Yes, today marked a historic event. Yes, I am an Obama supporter. But was today a halcyon celebration for all in DC? I was so grateful to find this and this, and know that I was not the only one who witnessed a day of nightmarish logistics. It's a little odd to fixate and invest so many resources into the inauguration, when what really matters is the administration that follows. It's not about the wedding; it's about the marriage. But...people need the lift of a celebration. I get it! Me too. So we'll leave the grumping at that.
