Inauguration Day: The end of the "just words" era.

I arrived back in Washington late Sunday night on a packed flight. The city is filled with the Obamaites are here to see the "messiah" and the Red line Metro trains are already packed at this early hour. I will have to drive back to Long Island early tomorrow because the Amtrak trains leaving the city are sold out beyond Wednesday. You can sense the excitement in the city. Even Cafe Ole one of our favorite restaurants here in northwest DC was packed on the usual quiet Monday night. Today is the day when hope crashes head on to the reality. Today is the day when Barack Obama becomes our President and the speeches he gave have to become something more than just words. At least that is my hope.
