ANTIGONOS' BRAIN

Your Brain is Green
Of all the brain types, yours has the most balance. You are able to see all sides to most problems and are a good problem solver. You need time to work out your thoughts, but you don't get stuck in bad thinking patterns. You tend to spend a lot of time thinking about the future, philosophy, and relationships (both personal and intellectual).

Why I'm Not Interested in Obama's Inaugural Speech

“The platitude quotient tends to be high, the rhetoric stately and self-serving, the ritual obsessive, and the surprises few.”

Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., 1965

Absolutely! Aretha Franklin singing God Save the Queen was pretty surprising though.

It surprises most Americans that the British national anthem is "My Country 'Tis of Thee" :-)

Every now and then there is a movement to change the US anthem to something people actually can sing, but it never goes anywhere. "America the Beautiful" has often been proposed.

Some wag in The Independent suggested that Aretha should have sung I Say A Little Prayer instead given what BHO is up against.
