Well, we've finally made it to the day we've all been waiting for. After eight years of headcases and gun nuts in the White House, we actually now seem to have a real person about to take charge. I was looking at the timetable of events for today earlier on, and I was amused to see that at 12.40pm (5.40 our time),Obama 'escorts Bush and former VP Dick Cheney to a departure ceremony' - the use of the word 'escorts' makes it sound like someone throwing out troublemakers - "Alright lads, time's time."

I'm not expecting Barack Obama to be a miracle worker - his country has been left up to its neck in various piles of guano by the current lot - but let's hope he can get through his presidency without screwing things up too much. As a natural pessimist, even I'm optimistic that he can.

Thanks to Helen for 'Changes' picture.

EDIT: 5.40-ish. He's in, World saved.
