Tolerance and Curiosity

What can I say? I’m not quite so jaded and cynical. I felt the need to tap into some sort of communal experience this morning. So I found myself standing out in the cold for a good forty minutes, waiting to get into The Riverview. It was worth it to watch the inaugural ceremonies on the big screen, in a packed theater. Guess we non-believers need the catharsis of getting weepy together too.

The shared experience continues with the New York Times and their Picturing the Inauguration: The Readers’ Album. And Flickr’s blog post “We Watched” with a growing pool of Inauguration 2009 photos.
