2009 & they’re off: snow, inauguration and publication

4 inches yesterday, some remains today, all gone tomorrow. Sounds like one of the major banks. Why is Bank of America 30% more valuable than it was yesterday; although, still only $6.68 per share. Does the market like talk of nationalization? Did it have a chance to re-read President Obama’s address?!

I enjoyed his remarks and did not find them to be on par with Abraham Lincoln’s 2nd Inaugural. Really enjoyed the benediction and Aretha Franklin, especially the way that she include Martin Luther King’s ‘I have a Dream’ phrases into her rendition of God Bless America. Much work ahead of us. Much necessary and useful and purposeful work ahead of us. A good start to a new chapter for America.

Returned to my office yesterday from the televised inauguration to learn that an interview for a business magazine was just published. Amazing what a competent editor can do to make a 30 minute phone ramble coherent. I am eager for different & difference: different ways of living, relating, behaving, enjoying. Must admit, so far, so good.
