What can you say that isn't fatuous, pompous, or cliched? Of course, we in Chicagoland are doubly astounded about the inauguration--south side! White Sox! And I'm not sure my kids get it--they are not in any way as damaged by America's racial history as we are. But, you know, it's hard to believe. Who won't be weeping? I'm making my classes stay home to watch. I hope you're watching, too. Cynics, and I am a political cynic myself, maybe the boost in hope and rejoicing will help tip the ship back upright. Just a little. Ah, to heck with it. I told you I'd sound silly.
