Well, I just finished watching Obama's inauguration, with a nice performance by Yo-yo Ma and others, Obama was as usual very animated and tried really hard to be 'profound.'

But, it was all good. Obama is a welcome breath of fresh air.

However, they called a poet named Elizabeth Alexander apparently a professor at Yale. Which I think is where dubya went too right ? well, Yale, it sucks to be you right now.
She recited, what is in my opinion, the WORST POEM EVER written. In fact it sucked more than a super-massive black hole which at least has an excuse; being real and hence subject to the law of gravitation. The poem was something about farmers and wooden spoons and walking down the street. Like a bad goth poem, with the goth parts replaced by lines that can only be described as feeble attempts at sounding existential and shit.

Oh, yeah. It is a letter, I am speaking from hearsay here, but I believe that it is rumored to come after the letter 'G.'

I am not really sure :(
