Four More Years to "Vale"  
I'd like to know why the dog-and-pony show is being held today. Mr. Obama was sworn in yesterday; if he wanted a show, that was the time to have it.

This, truly, is a spectacle for the masses. Will he be wearing ermine and purple, or have the ultimate gall to wear the corona radiata of Rome's emperors?

Tradition. This is the seventh time the official date has fallen on a Sunday. Each time, the ceremonies have been pushed off to the Monday following.

Plus, of course, having the festivities fall on Martin Luther King day makes quite a lot of political sense, for him.

Milk MLKDAY for all it's worth. All he's missing is a fancy crown and a scepter.
