The State of Hawaii is watching their son Barry Obama take the oath to be sworn into office this morning.  I arrived early to the conference lobby at 6:30 AM to check it out on big screen tv’s set up.  There are about 50 people gathered to watch on two television screens set up.

I’m listening to Obama give his speech now.  The next generation must lower it’s sights.  Well, as a participant at this conference on telecommunications in the Asia-Pacific region, I have to say that the world is moving pretty fast and technological evolution is no longer the domain of the United States.

“men and women obscure in their labor”… sounds like the writer of this blog 😉

“pick ourselves up and dust ourselves off” … I have to do this every time I feel like no one reads or cares

“Jews and Hindus… and nonbelievers”… funny how a shift in language can make America so much more inclusive.

Rev. Joseph Lowery: “tanks will be beaten into tractors”… AMEN!!!!!…”brown can stick around”… u listening Fiji????????
