Like FDR three-quarters of a century ago, you're taking charge at a moment when all the old certainties have vanished, all the conventional wisdom been proved wrong.

I even thought I would watch his speech, but was overcome with nausea after about one minute. I want the news to refocus on Obama, come on! This is one of the most important weekends in American history, forget Bush, he is history! So I will continue my little theme of posting some Obama photos because they cheer me up. Ya, he knows how to use the computer. Ops, I should have included this one in the group with Michelle. Click on them a few times to get them bigger.
In celebration of next week’s Inauguration and in commemoration of Black History Month in February, we have made the Oxford African American Studies Center (AASC) freely available to the public until March 1. Visitors to the site’s home page – www.oxfordaasc.com – will see instructions on how to login with a special username & password combination (user: barackobama / pass: president) that will give them free, unlimited access to the site for the next 6 weeks.
Please take a look at the beautiful photo essay on Barack Obama that is on the site this month, and also feel free to share this free access with everyone you know!
