Why I'm Laughing and Crying This Morning

I give myself 30 minutes each morning to read through the new posts in Google Reader. Today I've already laughed and cried, and the inauguration is still hours away. Here's why.
Andi's poem over at a wrung sponge.

Julius Lester posted Thoughts on the Day before the Inauguration. It kicked me in the gut, made me think (as Julius' writing always does) and started big tears rolling down my face.

Neil Gaiman posted Everything you wanted to know about pills and this one dog. I practically fell off my chair laughing at the description of his dog eating the various coatings and spitting out the pill. Been there, done that.
Now to work. Happy Inauguration Day, all!
