I just want to celebrate -OR- It's not the meat it's the motion.

" deal with the challenges that for too long have been kicked down the road."
Rahm Emmanuel on MTP 1/18/09

Funny things happen on the road to implementation.

Can you feel it? The warp-sprung harkening back to a different time?
Going back to the 60's and plugging in the vibe? Not so much a do-over, just a do-right. We know who "won" the cultural revolution. Despite ravings to the contrary, if you look at the intervening years with any objectivity at all, the status quo that cheered the beatings and hosings, Nixon's silent majority, the Love it or Leave it throng; maintained control. The won the battles, they lost the war.
Their Law and Order, MIGHT IS RIGHT, pay no attention to the nattering nabobs of negativity mantra was glacially rejected because it failed on every measure.

Taking credit for the good, shifting blame for the bad, may finally have been seen as the logical fallacy that it has always been. Opposite World is being revealed as the root cause.

Symbolically, today's grudgingly granted remembrance of Dr. King will dovetail seamlessly into tomorrow's inauguration. Pure nectar to a bevy of labeled groups kept apart, played against each other and marginalized for political advantage.
Today it is still but a promise. It will be a slogging process to ferret out the
cancerous remnants of the old guard. Self-preservation will call their bluff. They will adapt. Mutate? They will hear another King's Langoliers.

On the Threshold of A Dream

"When the white eagle of the North is flying overhead, and the browns, reds and golds of autumn lie in the gutter, dead. Remember then, that summer birds with wings of fire flaying,
came to witness spring's new hope, born of leaves decaying.
Just as new life will come from death, love will come at leisure. Love of love, love of life, and giving without measure, gives in return a wondrous yearn of a promise, almost seen.
Live hand-in-hand and together we'll stand on the threshold of a dream."
