2001 (HAL 9000 eye)


"Vice President Dick Cheney reportedly injured his back last night moving boxes into his new Virginia home. He'll attend today's ceremony in a wheelchair."

     —The Times

You know, if it were anyone else, I suspect I'd feel at least some sympathy... but instead, all I can think is, "What a nice metaphor."

After watching the oath and the inaugural speech, I have a strange sense of... uh... what's the opposite of "shame", again? I seem to have forgotten...

But I think I might like having a smart President again.  :-)
