I would not be joking about this if anyone had been seriously injured or killed. What an incredible story!
I love presidential inaugurations. There are certain things dealing with pomp and pageantry that make me proud to be an American. Like the way we honor a veteran at a military service. The changing of the guard at Arlington Cemetery. And the peaceful exchange of power in the White House.
So whether I vote for a candidate or not (I even watched and enjoyed Bill Clinton's 1st inauguration), I enjoy the inauguration ceremony. I will take my day off next Tuesday just to see it.
Update to yesterday's blog: Kudos to Michael Young for reversing his decision and agreeing to the change of position. He IS one of the good guys in sports, and once again he proved it.
