Happy MLK Day

Jan 19, 2009

Interesting that it is the day before the inauguration; a fact which had little significance until now.

It was pretty jammed up here in Baltimore on Saturday, what with the visit of the new President-Elect, Barack Obama. I wasn’t there (since I had other things I needed to do that day, and believe me, if you were in the city you weren’t going anywhere!) but I heard there was partying.

We’re all a little busted up about the Ravens losing, but at least the Cardinals won. Otherwise, it would just be Pennsylvania playing itself in the Super Bowl. It would be years before our neighbors would cease saying things to all of the rest of us like, “When you learn how to play football, come visit us!” Congenial… yet insulting.

Soon we’ll post some videos and other content relating to recent events, and future ventures. (Sufficiently vague, right?) Stay tuned! Or, clicked – or whatever you do to keep checking back.
