Obama's Inauguration Show
All of us here at the Holabird Advocate have been watching the inauguration festivities with a certain amount of interest. Whether or not one voted for him, it's important to note that Obama is the only President we have. As such we, as good citizens need to at least observe the goings on, mainly because we are paying for it, and will continue to do so for a while. Reports of 800,000-1,000,000 people watched and are watching events transpire live
The music for this event from Beyonce, the Brooklyn Choir, and even Kelly Clarkson should make us all proud to be American. It was also interesting to see the President renew his vows to America using bibles borrowed from both Martin Luther King and Abe Lincoln. And despite reports to the contrary, Obama said "So help me God" at the end of his oath.
A while back, Jimmy Kimmel did a "man on the street" interview where he asked people to name their representative in Congress, and they couldn't do it! Yet some of them were able to identify members of the cast of "Jersey Shore", or who Honey Boo Boo is, and THAT, the could do.
Publisher Plans to Belly up
For a while now, Jerry Hinkle, our courageous dynamic, Publisher, had planned on checking out the CherryBerry Yogurt bar just on the edge of South Mitchell. The fact that it in the temperature is in the single digits outside has not dampened his curiosity. If he gets all his work done, hopefully he'll be able to get out there before the place closes at 9pm!
