Here’s a question for you to ponder:

Is Barack Obama’s inauguration really the most important event of the week?

Answers on a postcard, please. Or just leave your response in the comments.


  1. I usually catch the news every day (in large part for the weather report, but I listen to other stuff too). I've declared a blackout for Jan 20, and maybe the rest of the week.

    Frankly, making a gingerbread house from toilet paper rolls would be more important than the ceremony of crowning his royal highness.

  2. We will only know when the week is over.

  3. No way - the most important thing is what is Michelle going to wear!!!

  4. Nah my cousin's birthday is more important. At least I'v met him.

  5. Yes. The very fact that the Clintons have secured a third term is newsworthy.

  6. Like it or not, yes. Son of goat herder becomes first black president of the world's most powerful superpower.

  7. Without an iota of doubt. Champagne lunch at work, then drinks at a friends place after, anyways...
