January 20, 2009: THE END OF AN ERROR

Here's our breakfast on a card table, set up especially for the occasion to watch the inaugural address on our old snowy 3 channel TV screen.

It's a brand new world, in which the president opens his mouth and everyone stands rapt, listening to mellifluous sentences whose endings match up with their middles and beginnings. The whole world exhales a long sigh of relief along with us.

Gone from our TV screens is the stupefied look of someone smackered upside the head by a question that's too hard. We are a cringe-free nation at last!
