Inauguration Day Past

January 21, 2009

 Presidential Inaugurations!   Why don’t we simply call them “coronations”!   I really don’t have much to say on this subject so this posting will be very short!

Couple of points:

1. Why do I get the feeling that the nation has just been given a dose of hemlock?

2. Why is so much money spent?  Is the approach one that expresses the notion being thus: the louder the noise the greater the concealment of plunder?  Or,

 3. Is more to the truth of Marie Antoinette’s famous reply, when all around her were the signs of a collapsing France, “Well, then, let them eat cake.”
