Sometimes the Right Is More Sinister Than the Left
It's nice to see that Barack Obama did not lose his wits or his wit, amid all the solemnity of the day. Here's what he said while making his first proclamation as President:
"I'm a lefty. Get used to it," Obama quipped as he signed his name. "I was told not to swipe the pen."
I just hope that he is able to steer the nation on a course where he will have the opportunity to get used to it.

Fingers crossed. People that smart can do so much good. But they also have more power to do harm. So far, he seems like a keeper.

Oh, yes. Thanks for that. I wrote back write away, but my comment was posted anonymously and therefore invisible.

it's fab. i hadn't heard of him before. i started to read the article and was a bit yeah whatever, but then he got into this stuff about niggerisation, and i thought that was really powerful, and then i was gripped. that phrase near the end 'blues inflicted hope' reached right inside me.
