Ah, the Inauguration. Yet another excuse for our government to do nothing, while spending a great deal of money doing it.

Hands down, the highlight was Kelly Clarkson who was great. If you didn’t hear her rendition of “Of thee I sing,” you can find it on-line. When Senator Chuck Schumer came back to the podium after Ms. Clarkson was done, the first thing he said was, “Wow.” He was right.

The leaders of our country are at lunch now. See the menu below? (Click on it to make it larger.) Thank goodness that single mother working two jobs to raise her kids, eating her homemade peanut butter and jelly sandwich on the bus, doesn’t have time to watch. Maybe the millions who are still un- and under-employed will catch a glimpse on the screens in store windows on their way to their next interview.
