Granted, this editorial animated cartoon is from Nov. 5, 2008, but I think today it's equally as apropos!
And if you want some good reading, go here and read what my buddy, Gunfighter, has to say to those in his past and any in the future who tell him he's a sell out to his people because he chose to use good grammar and standard English.
Yesterday, Mr. Obama was at Walter Reed Army Medical Center and then at Calvin Coolidge H.S. as part of his day of service. Both of these are mere blocks from my home. We went out to see the president's (how cool is it that we can say that now?!) motorcade and the atmosphere was electric! For the first time in a long time, this city is pumped!
Finally, if you want to see some nice photos of events going on over the last few days and today, visit fellow photoblogger Juxtaexposed. And, in a bit of shameless self-promotion, check out my blog, too. (Although, I haven't posted nearly as many pictures as Juxta. As prolific as I can be with my camera, I've been overwhelmed by the emotion and excitement of the last few days and can't adequately capture the feeling. This is one of those moments in history where you have to see it and feel it to believe it.)
