Great Day


For those living in alternate universes and aren't aware (which obviously doesn't describe anybody reading this site :), President Bush was sworn in his second term today. In case you missed it on television, like me, you can read his address here. It's similarities to JFK's inaugural address 44 years ago are uncanny.

Here's an excerpt for ya:

"We have seen our vulnerability - and we have seen its deepest source. For as long as whole regions of the world simmer in resentment and tyranny - prone to ideologies that feed hatred and excuse murder - violence will gather, and multiply in destructive power, and cross the most defended borders, and raise a mortal threat. There is only one force of history that can break the reign of hatred and resentment, and expose the pretensions of tyrants, and reward the hopes of the decent and tolerant, and that is the force of human freedom."

Dennis Prager had great things to say about it, and I will blog those later tonight as I take a minute from the music world to enter the wide world of politics. For now, I'm quite thrilled that we have him for another 4 years. It's a great day in world history. More later.
