Today is technically inauguration day. Though it’s just after midnight and our new president will be sworn in in just over 8 hours in a tremendous celebration of hope and history.

I know that I, for one, am eager to see what will happen to our nation. I’m optimistic. I’m also worried. There’s talk of another stimulus payment, which did so much last time. Can we really keep borrowing from tomorrow to pay for today? It doesn’t seem to have historically worked out so well.

So I enter the next four years cautiously, hoping the political pendulum doesn’t swing too far the other way. We’ll see, won’t we?
