Inauguration Day

And now we have a new president.

Didn't go down to the Mall for the Inauguration.  Didn't even consider it.  But I've never even watched any part of any Inauguration Ceremony on TV.  Never really wanted to.  But there was something different about this time...

I know that there are multiple serious crises that need to be dealt with.  And that we can't be sure that even Obama will be capable of dealing with them.

But it makes a big difference that the most powerful person in the country will now be part of the solution and not a problem to be worked around.
