Inauguration notes


– I love that Obama mentioned “non-believers” in his speech. I believe it is the first time that a president has included and validated them as part of the American family.

– It was somehow fitting and satisfying to see Dick Cheney confined to a wheelchair.

– Aretha’s hat, my friends and I agree, was stolen from a drag queen, albeit a fierce one.

– Speaking of hats, none of the major figures get to wear them in that cold (for image purposes, one imagines). Brrr.

    funny u mentioned it – i grinned to myself a bit when he said “non-believers” too… though, i spose it wud have been nicer if he’d said “atheists”. non-believers sounds so…. middle ages!
