All-New Issue

Heading into our first full week with President-Elect Obama, it feels like a fresh start for America even though all the hardcore economic problems that existed a week ago are still here, and the other party is still in power.

That said, you'd be hard-pressed for a photo that better captures where we are right now in relation to our ecstatic history than this one at BAGnewsNotes, and equally able to enjoy David Brooks' honest depiction of where that other party is right now:

You've got a whole slew of babies who just got named Barack, Michele, Malia or Sasha. You've got a post-mortem by the team that helped their boss win the election that's filled with all the great moral attributes you'd like to hear -- no drama, no infighting, no hanging on race, win good.

And you've got 50 count'em 50 facts you may not know about our incoming President.

For example, did you know that he collects both Spider-Man and Conan the Barbarian comic books?

I wonder if he has any of the early Steve Ditkos or Barry Windsor-Smiths in his collection.

This is the guy the Repubs tried to paint as an elitist:
"He ate dog meat, snake meat, and roasted grasshopper while living in Indonesia ."


Of course, he uses an Apple, but I'll try not to hold that against him.
