Joseph Lowery, a civil rights leader with Dr. King, speaks in North Carolina today before heading to DC to give the benediction at the inaguration tomorrow. More fun is this blast from the past from Rev. Lowery at Coretta Scott King's funeral. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a3j9ltp1qM8 It's 8 minutes long, but more than worth it.

My wife has classes all day tomorrow, but is going to skip out for the actual event. Anyone know? Oh, wait, that is so lazy. Obama will take the Oath of Office, using President Lincoln's Inaugural Bible, administered by Chief Justice John Roberts. Scheduled around noon. Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over. -me Looking forward Under 17 hours now until change of watch. Good lord, please get Obama in there before the outgoing walking disaster gets talked into some more unfathomable mischief! Dan Besse 12 Hours Only 12 Hours to go now. I can't wait to see Obama say "So help me god" and become the 44th President of the USA. I can't wait either ....but I guess we'll have to. *************************** Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own. It's weird. I can't sleep. I feel like something special is going to happen tomorrow. Oh Wait! Something special IS going to happen tomorrow.
