What’s Your Pledge?

Look, the excitement today is so palpable it’s hard to think about or work on anything else, so let’s just talk about what’s on all of our minds, shall we? The third season of “Mad Men” is a go!! Oh, okay, fine — that’s big, but it’s not the reason we had trouble sleeping last night, is it? Today’s the day Barack Obama is sworn in as our 44th president and the Bush’s will fly off into the sunset forever (well, maybe not into the sunset, but whatever that shining light from Texas looks like heralding them home…far, far away from the halls of Washington). In celebration on the big event, Oprah had a live show yesterday from the Kennedy Center that you may have heard about. Keep reading »
