What a great week.
As my wife likes to continually remind me, “it’s not always about you,” but then again, I don’t really see her TheAcsWoman site anywhere, now do I?
But this was a great week, even as it isn’t always about the stock market.
The stock market basically did nothing on the week, but who cares?
Ordinarily, my answer to that rhetorical question would be “I do,” but this week was different.
It was different because, despite political differences and still some astonishment as I watched the Inauguration, still wondering how both political parties could have failed so badly as to get us to this point, it became clear that what hasn’t failed is our nation’s ability to move forward.
That explains why I attended one of the Inaugural Balls last night, although I did try to keep a low profile, due to my well-known political ties on the other side of the aisle.
I made the mistake, though, of being in the same place and the same time as the famed Eddy Elfenbein, of Crossing Wall Street and, so, it was hard to escape the cameras.
But the point is that the process is one that reflects greatness, as does peaceful protest.
