Cold aside, I'm sorry I'll not be near the tube today for the Inauguration. I was appalled at an AOL poll that shows most won't watch a bit of it. I don't care who you voted for, a peaceful democratic transition (an American inaugural) is still one of the world's great wonders. If you don't like George W. Bush, watch for George Washington's sake!
