Just a few more notes on Thursday's inauguration:
I said before the speech that I liked P.J. O'Rourke's version (see Wednesday's post), but I think I like this Cliff's Notes version even better. (Thanks KJL.)
As for the actual speech, try Peggy Noonan's analysis, elegant as always. A little pessimistic? Time will tell. (Thanks, WJS.)
Finally, an observation of my own - the headline on Yahoo! news Friday read "Thousands in U.S. protest Bush inauguration." That's thousands, not hundreds of thousands or even tens of thousands, in a country of almost 300 million. Ooh, I'm really impressed...
