When the Red Man, can get ahead, man

Spitfire Inauguration Party

Spitfire Inauguration Party

We were absolutely blown away by the inauguration of number 44.  We loved the music, the sight of millions of people on the national Mall, the sight of Sasha laughing when Rick Warren did his “Saassshaa”, and sight of President Obama taking the oath of office.

But we loved Dr.Joseph Lowery’s benediction, when he spoke of great times ahead, including the time when “the Red Man, can get ahead, man.”

Nuff said, for now.  Now we have to run to all the parade parties, and for those of us here in WA, to get some breakfast!

Wait, NBC is reporting over 2 million on the Mall.  The sweeping boom arm shots over the mall are amazing.

o.k., now we have to think about the inaugural address for a minute.
