We're still in San Francisco and had our own impromptu party in Joe and Gay Haldeman's room to watch the inauguration of Barack Obama this morning. There were about a dozen of us laughing, weeping, and applauding. (From left to right: Russell Davis, Mary Robinette Kowal, Gay Haldeman, John Scalzi, Sherry Davis, Ann Crispin, Len Wein, and Jane Jewell with Joe Haldeman closest to the camera.)
What a great day. President Barack Obama. What a great speech. Science is back. Tolerance is back. It's about time.
