Finally, I’m back on U street after a crazy 24 hours: spending the night at a friend’s on H street NE, walking at least 10 miles to get to and from the Mall, her place, and my place, and seeing Barack Obama be sworn in as our nation’s 44th president. I’m too tired to give more about my impressions of how the whole day ran, more of that tomorrow. I wanted to share my joy and elation that Barack Obama is no longer president-elect of the United States and now the PRESIDENT of the United Staes.
