So Much Fuss

I don’t watch news on TV and I don’t read (paper) newspapers. And yet I cannot escape the hoopla around Obama’s inauguration ceremony today. I understand “change is coming” and I understand “yes, we can” and all that. But for heaven’s sake, it’s only an inauguration ceremony! It’s not as if Obama has done anything yet to justify all brouhaha. Let him first find a cure for cancer or achieve world peace, then we can celebrate so lavishly. Surely in these economic times a little humility on the expenses side would have been a welcome “change”, no?
