Inaugural commentary–because no one else has

I keep telling y’all how easy it is to make the local media here in West Lafayette.  Check it out:

<object type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” id=”video” width=”320″ height=”280″ data=”http://www.wlfi.com/video/videoplayer.swf”><param value=”http://www.wlfi.com/video/videoplayer.swf” name=”movie”/><param value=”&skin=MP1ExternalAll-MFL.swf&embed=true&flv=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Ewlfi%2Ecom%2Ffeeds%2FoutboundFeed%3FobfType%3DVIDEO%5FPLAYER%5FSMIL%5FFEED%26componentId%3D19711636&img=http%3A%2F%2Fmedia2%2Ewlfi%2Ecom%2F%2Fphoto%2F2009%2F01%2F20%2Fdems%5Finaug0afe788a%2D9053%2D4c90%2D92eb%2D19fa8f5d8db10000%5F20090120190024%5F640%5F480%2EJPG&story=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Ewlfi%2Ecom%2Fdpp%2Fnews%2Flocal%5Fwlfi%5Flocaldemocratinaugrationparty%5Flafayette%5F2009120%5Frev1″ name=”FlashVars”/><param value=”all” name=”allowNetworking”/><param value=”always” name=”allowScriptAccess”/></object>

Now, I don’t know if this is going to work, so here’s the ordinary url:

http://www.wlfi.com/dpp/news/local_wlfi_localdemocratinaugrationparty_lafayette_2009120_rev1

And here’s a picture that appeared on p. 7 of this morning’s Journal and Courier:

Yes, I did my best LB imitation and pulled my 3 oldest out of school for the viewing party hosted by our county Democratic Party.  They had a blast and were back at school by 1:30.

Oh, and the Inauguration:  totally historical, memorable, and inspiring.  But the most fun part was waving “buh-bye” at Bush’s helicopter as it took off from the East side of the Capitol.  Obama’s speech was not meant to transport us to never-experienced heights of oratorical orgasm.  It was meant to sober us up and make us think.  And that is not a bad thing after being talked down to for 8 long miserable years.

    We actually danced in the street yesterday in Berkeley while the inaugural parade was on a big screen. It was such a happy day!

    That would have been fun!!! I read a story about SF changing “Bush Street” signs to “Obama Street”–cracked me up!
