This blog used to be about politics. Not so much anymore as I have worked through my fascination with that subject. It now seems appropriate that with a new president and the end of the Bush nightmare that I move on to new subjects that are more in line with my current interests. I may still occasionally express an opinion about political matters but for the most part I will be commenting on music, photography and personal observations. Thank you for reading.

F the President
Today is inauguration day. This blog is decorated accordingly.

Against my better judgement I tuned into the coverage of today's event. A few notes on the event:

We get nearly a full day's coverage in high-def of the president driving down the street in an armored limo, and I can't help but contrast this with the coverage of Powell's presentation to the United Nations and how quickly the networks cut back to regular programming with little analysis or coverage of the questions posed to Powell by the members of the Security Council. (For that I had to switch on my radio.. and for ther record, I'd rather watch the inauguration than daytime crap.)

Dan Rather actually wondered aloud why there were protestors at the parade.

An academic commentator said, in effect, that the media will choose which scandal to focus on this term. The media types in attendence remained silent and then went about with another story. (Hilarious!)

Looking through the donor list you might be curious who Rooney Holdings Inc. from Tulsa, OK. represents. They gave the maximum $250,000 to the president's Inauguration bonanza. Rooney Brothers are the controlling interests in Manhattan Construction Co. the 448th largest defense contractor.

448th was worth $101 million dollars in Pentagon contracts in 2003. They are also the construction company that built the Ballpark at Arlington, The Bush Presidential Library and the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center being used for the 2005 Inauguration. Apparently that project was worth $144 million.

Its good to be friends with the Bushes.
