This is a great day. Not because a black man will become President, but because a good man will become President and his race matters not.

Thanks to a surprise snow, I'm able to stay home and watch the inauguration on TV. I am riveted.

My 15 year has his first serious girlfriend and I am finding it necessary to talk to him about sex. Not because he is there yet, (please, please, please), but I don't have 100% control over his decision about when, now do I? No, I don't. And I'm smart enough to realize that.

I did not sign up for this. Where is the exit?
