I grew up being told that anyone in the country could grow up to be president, but until yesterday never saw that promise fulfilled. And to have a president who can actually speak English without mangling the language is a double gift from the gods of politics and, as our editor says, eloquence. When we were discussing his speaking style on here months ago, I didn’t dare believe we would ever see Mr. Obama get here. Dare to believe, dare to believe. As Robert kennedy (channeling Camus) said, “Some men see things as they are and ask `why.’ I dream things that never were and ask, `why not?’ […] you thought that Obama post was my swan song, think again. I’ll be diving back in (a swan dive?) this year with new posts […] I’m a 90-year old admirer of all things good English uasage. March 4th as National Grammar Day warms my inards. Glad to hear it!
