Live blogging Inauguration day (SF style)

A *cough* new dawn for America.

Sorry couldn't help myself.

San Francisco political events are always entertaining. Almost six years ago to the day, I attended a peace protest on the streets of San Francisco and sent an illustrated report to friends and family (this before my blogging days). With the war as the legacy of the last president, I have retroactively posted that e-mail here on the blog. consider it kind of a karmic purging of the last administration.

There will be a inaugural simulcast event at the Civic Center this morning, and I'll be walking down to the Civic Center in the early light for a live-blog report. I don't know how many people will be there, but I am hopeful that SF will live up to its political entertainment reputation.

Stay tuned.

In keeping with the "golf reflects life" theme, your last post from Sunday at Poplar Creek must also refer to the Bush administration's rein of terror. Thank god it's over.

Yeah - I am neither enthusiastic nor optimistic about our One Party Rule with this "new politic" president who's actual policies are 100% exactly identical to tired old liberal big spending big government bromides.

But that does not stop me from being completely delighted that the incredibly incompetent GWB administration is finally consigned to the dustbin of history.
