    On Election Day. . .we never made it to the euphoric post-election celebrations. . .On the morning after the election, hoping to belatedly capture some of that magic, my wife, daughter and I resolved to attend the inauguration.

    Ha.  That was exactly the logic behind my purchase of the plane ticket to DC -- I couldn't enjoy the election-night celebrations because I was doing commentary on the local NPR station, so I vowed to celebrate with the masses on the 20th.  

    I'm glad you ended up having a good time.  I'm still having trouble finding words to describe the feeling of standing shoulder-to-shoulder with more than a million happy people.

    The moral arc of the universe just had one hell of a bend.
