It Amuses Me

That the central theme of Big O's inaugural was growing up and taking responsibility, setting aside childish things, and what fills the TPM comments? Fighting over whether or not the speech contained true "bumper sticker" phrases like JFK's that people will remember.

Big O forgot one thing when calling upon the nation to grow up: THE INTERNET.

(relevant to the last few) I'm so glad you have a blog (almost typed glob there, but can't see how that's relevant at all) and I can smile because somehow you're mine and I can brag and feel smug about you. =)

People are trained to seek sound bytes, it's true. In some cases we need memorable mantras. I loved the speech, but I'm actually more interested in comparing the invocation and the benediction... any thoughts?
