I haven't done one of these in so long that it's truly a treat. Since Obama's the flavor of the moment, let's stick to related news:
Bicyclemark recently wrote about the difficulty some will now face with Bush gone. It was so easy to staunchly oppose everything about the Bush administration, but now we've elected someone different, more positive. What will happen to those "entire systems of meaning?" It's going to mean a big shift...at least for now.
Others, however, are already proving this may not be the case. The Angry Arab raises some points about the coming Obama administration that I really hope aren't true. Oh please, can't we celebrate in blissful ignorance for a little bit longer?
And on a much lighter note, check out Yes We Can (Hold Babies). Don't ask me where I found this one.
Coming up: A focus on Dubai. I'll be there in a few weeks. In between enjoying the climate, the beach and the rampant capitalism, there are a few other (less fluffy?) things that need to be kept in mind.
