    Just wanted to take a second to note that we inaugurated a black man, despite that fact being maybe the least of his formidable qualities, to the Presidency for the second time today.

    Even given the tumultuous arc of history in this country, it’s still pretty fucking amazing.

    I agree with you that it’s great, even if I declined to vote for him this time around. However, I wish he was a more effective executive than he proved to be throughout his first term (when I did vote for him).

    Something like 700,000 people in attendance for the inauguration, but only seven are missing work.

    I wouldn’t say I’ve been missing it Bob.

    Watching the coverage on Fox news makes it seem like they are covering a funeral.

    Heh. That’s already in the other thread.

    Nice bit at the end of that article, though:

    If it’s ever built, I’d advise against moving to The Citadel. I think its imprudent to surround yourself entirely with people from a narrow slice of the political spectrum; nonsensical to dedicate so many resources to self-defense when you’re living in rural Idaho, and your odds of being a victim of crime or invasion is extremely low; and foolhardy to raise your kids in a place where they’ll be miserable unless they happen to share both your politics and enthusiasm for gun culture. (Plus, if you trust the incorruptibility of a private arbitration board … exactly why do you?)

    But for anyone who does move to The Citadel, it’s your right to do so.

    And I wish you luck.

    It’s funny what you decide to be a prude about.
