Time to get down to business.

Last year's over with. And the worst part of '05, the part of the year I always dread, is behind me now as well. New year, new start, new Nash. I've got a plan. I've got an adgenda. And I'm damn near unstoppable when I get focused on something.

Time to prove that even fallen stars can shine once again.

I love the whole inauguration ceremony. I think it's pretty damn powerful - proof of our freedom and our democracy. The President of the United States is arguably the most powerful man in the free world, and yet this position can change hands peacefully. Even after the bitter lies and mudslinging of this most recent election, things work out calmly and peacefully in the end.

However, I do have to feel uneasy about so much pomp and circumstance when we're at war. No reason to hold off on an election unless the US itself was being invaded, but when people are dying left and right overseas, why blow so much money into balloons and confetti? And since this is his second go-around, it doesn't seem to be as important as a newly crowned leader's celebration. ::shrugs::

I personally would have liked to have seen a more minimalistic celebration. Kind of quiet and dignified...sure, have the bands march down the street and all, but cut some costs and send the cash over to the tsunami survivors or the soldiers over in the Middle East. No need for NINE formal balls all in one night. =P

Today's Trivia Tidbit

The reason firehouses have circular stairways is from the days of yore when the engines were pulled by horses. The horses were stabled on the ground floor and learned how to walk up standard staircases.
