Stateside with Rosalea: Big Chill
Well, I've just watched the inauguration address and commentary on BBC News streaming video and I'm not sure what to think. BBC, like all of us, deigned the most significant words that Bush said to be the ones about people who live in tyrannies being able to count on the US to help them in their fight for freedom. The Beeb closed with a replay of those very words.
But who does Bush mean? The rebels in Aceh? After all, they are fighting for religious freedom--which is the very germ of the seed that became the United States. Or is he talking about, say, Iran?
Either way, wasn't it nice to see all that pretty snow? I wasn't even there and it chilled me to the bone.
