So we have a new president of the United States.
I find him very heartening and was impressed by his inauguration speech.
I find it rather sad that so much import is put upon the colour of his skin, although given the racial prejudice we find in the world, and the sad history of the US in this area, I can understand it.
Even so, the fact that he is black is not what impresses me. It is his sheer intellect, rapport and likability. While it is remarkable that a black man has been elected to this office, what matters are what he actually does and the extent to which he makes the world a better place.
I wish him well.
