Two quick takes off the New York Times this morning:
“Barack Obama plans to use his full name, Barack Hussein Obama, at his inauguration.”
“For the first time, a gay and lesbian band will be marching in a presidential inauguration.
Barack Obama’s Presidential Inaugural Committee has chosen the Lesbian and Gay Band Association, with members from across the country, to march in the inaugural parade in Washington on Jan. 20.”
After 8 years in the desert, even the progressive little details are refreshing.
