    Indeed! I couldn't be more excited . . . and I'm a Canadian, too. I haven't been able to tear myself away from the tv since coverage began (I'm watching it even while I type :).

    Me too! I started smiling the moment I woke up. πŸ™‚

    I've been watching the coverage up at my in-laws. It is indeed a happy day!

    Indeed! And I have been watching all day, in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Balkan, Europe! And I am so happy!

  9. The inauguration was a definite boost for anyone who cares about life on this planet, but there's an added bonus for book lovers: see the New York Times on Obama's love of reading at http://www.nytimes.com/2009/01/19/books/19read.html?pagewanted=1&_r=1&em

    I was there, I was there! I've just returned from Washington, and apart from witnessing history in the making, got a bag full of books from Washington's two wonderful used book stores, Capitol Hill and Second Story! Best. Trip. Ever.

  12. Sylvia says:

    Wow! That does sound like the best trip ever. I can't wait for the full report. πŸ™‚

  13. Sylvia says:

    That's fair enough considering the mess the US is in! Obama is no magician, but as his Middle East envoy said, humans have created our problems so humans can solve them. At least now there is a will to make things better and do the right thing.
