Inauguration note and DC Coverage

So the big day is tomorrow- I need to get some sleep! I am in DC right now, and I wish I was back in Saint Louis with my people. It makes me a bit sad, for all the work we have done, and work we still need to do is back home. We will be celebrating the inauguration of the new President, sure, but the real change has yet to come. We have much, much work to do and it begins with us. Much hard fought change will need to happen, especially in Saint Louis.

But today we will celebrate the inauguration of our new President. And we are having a party at the Royale for Barack Obama. We will be open at 10am with breakfast and the party will go straight through to 1:30am. We will have Josh Wiese hosting during lunch and L Curtis Lyle and Chris King host all day and afternoon into the evening with poetry and readings. Jim Utz, Thomas Crone and Jamie Toon will spin records in the evening. We will have specials of course on drinks and eats the whole time.

And I am covering the Inauguration for the Saint Louis Beacon and Salon.com with on the go video. It is great stuff, but it is pretty non-stop for me here. So I must get to sleep.

Peace and prosperity,
