obama fo’ yo mama

obama likes books.  according to an article in the nytimes by michiko kakutani, obama is a reader.  a lifelong lover of books.  mr. kakutani and i have had our differences, but i’m willing to take him on his word this time.  if i had any personal ambivalence about today’s inauguration, they have been quelled at least momentarily by the promising thought of a president that reads.  according to kakutani, the last president also read “prescriptive” books, but i find the notion hard to believe.

apparently, obama loves shakespeare, melville, and emerson.  a man after my own heart.  now, when i get a moment, i’ll have to pick up dreams of my father, which has been sitting patiently on my shelf.
