Despite all that, I felt a great deal of hope today. And now, to work. May the force be with him.

A Very Good Day
The above "form letter" (fake invitation?) came in a fancy ivory envelope from the Inaugural Committee accompanied by a piece of paper reminding me that I might want to stay at home and watch the inauguration on TV. Did I need an invitation? Can't I go to my Nation's Capital any day of the week, and find my own accommodations, and be excluded from all sorts of events and parties? I will admit, however, that I was fooled at first, and kind of excited, ("Like, oooh, Barack invited me because I volunteered and gave him money!"); it made me laugh at myself.
