34 years later

I was born 16 days after Nixon resigned. According to my mother, she refused to let her first child be born until Dick was out of office. I am kind of feeling the same way today. In terms of hope for the world my son will grow up in, I am much happier than I would have been had he been conceived a year earlier. Not to steal a line from Michelle O, but today is one of the first days I remember feeling faith in my country.

And I’m very grateful that my boss gathered us up in his office and let us watch the inauguration online. Though I (and the entire state of California) could have done without Rick Warren...
