New President!

Barack Obama is now the 44th President of the United States! Thank goodness, the gods, the Lord Almighty, and the noodly appendages of the Flying Spaghetti Monster... whomever you like! I greatly enjoyed his speech after he was sworn in, particularly this part:

"For everywhere we look, there is work to be done. The state of the economy calls for action, bold and swift, and we will act -- not only to create new jobs, but to lay a new foundation for growth. We will build the roads and bridges, the electric grids and digital lines that feed our commerce and bind us together. We will restore science to its rightful place, and wield technology's wonders to raise health care's quality and lower its cost. We will harness the sun and the winds and the soil to fuel our cars and run our factories. And we will transform our schools and colleges and universities to meet the demands of a new age. All this we can do. And all this we will do."
