Today is the biggest, proudest, most momentous day of my lifetime, at least my lifetime as an American.
That said, the moment defies superlative, defies hyperbole.
It is impossible for me to do it any justice. (Just watching the pundits on the morning news shows, you see how absurd it is to even try.)
There are the obvious sports tie-ins -- Obama as Fan-in-Chief (today's SN lead item), the tie-ins to the No. 44 (I have my own tribute).
The sports angle is cutesy, but I am far more heartened that we are entering a new era where smart is cool, competence is valued, execution is everything.
Otherwise, it largely defies description. It is just something to marvel at, to wonder at -- collectively -- like those images of the crowds on the Mall right now.
The moment is simultaneously intensely personal and entirely national. I'm left with the utterly inadequate: Wow.
