Historic Boredom

I’d appreciate Obama’s historic inauguration more if people would stop telling me at how historic it is. The talking heads are cheapening the whole event and turning it into just another infotainment show. It’ll be interesting to see what cute titles the news channels come up with. CNN, I think, is already running something called The Obama Express.

By the time Tuesday rolls around, I’ll have been stuffed with so much historic significance the only thing left to experience will be historic boredom.
