Too much to say and not enough time…

Apparently, along with many of you, I’ve got a heck of a lot on my mind lately.  There are so many things I want to share — reviews of new movies coming up (a little bit of escapism never hurt anyone), much,  much more on the auto industry, perspective on the economy, new technologies — but there will be NOTHING more exciting this coming week, than watching the inauguration of the Unites States of America’s first black president.  On Tuesday, January 20, 2009 starting at 11:30 am, Barack Obama will take his place in history.  I want to see Barack’s face the first moment he is called, “Mr. President”.  I want to hear the words he will first say and cry my first emotional tears of relief that he will be in place to lead a hopeful charge for our futures. 

Just as I remember exactly where I was on 9/11, the worst day in the history of the US, I will remember exactly where I am, on possibly, the best day in US history.

  1. I admire your optimism and hope you are correct about the future. Just keep in mind that Obama still has to deal with a Congress full of folks who place getting re-elected above all else. So to that extent, I have to think of “Won’t Get Fooled Again” by the Who, with the line “meet the new boss, same as the old boss.”

  2. I’m one of those people who is sickeningly optimistic at times and you are quite right in calling me on it! My opinion is shaped by having just come from the auto show and getting an insider’s view of the potential of green technologies, and I have to admit that I did emerge somewhat more hopeful about the next decade, than even a couple of weeks ago. Why? Green technology.

    The potential of green technology just in the auto industry can generate and create up to 900,000 new jobs just on the shoring up of infrastructure and the research on hydrogen fuel cells combined with electric propulsion models leads the way to an increasing number of alternatives to our very limited fuel sources. I don’t think, for a second, that Obama has an easy road ahead, but in this case, at this time, I believe the American people, will rise to the challenge and bring their ingenuity to the table…far ahead of the ability of government to react or legislate.

    We have a financial crisis of epic proportion, but we also have the ability to innovate and I’m going to put the little money I have left on the side of innovation.
