More writerly news tomorrow, for now history takes precidence.
I just love the way the timing is working on this. I mean, Obama still has to prove himslef, but the symbolism is amazing. Can it be only coincidence that the inaguration of the first African American president would come one day after Martin Luther King Day?
Though it's a long way from logical analysis, I'm taking this as a good sign. After all, I suspect that the only real difference between a coincidence and a good omen is whether people are looking at things with our usual cynicism, or through the eyes of hope. Right now, there is a lot of hope in the air, and when that is the case, anything is possible.
And THAT'S a good omen.
