"Black President," and "It's a New Day So Let a Man Get Up and Do the Popcorn" (two James Brown songs).


I got up and went out to buy snacks for the inauguration party I'm throwing. The bodega lady looking mildly baffled that I'm buying Newman-Os at 8:15 am.

Now I'm glued to the TV, waiting with Tom Brokaw and Meredith Viera for the Obamas to get into another car, drive a miniscule distance, then get out of it again.

It's so moving to see a gigantic crowd of black people waving American flags.
