Rick Warren? Huh, wow. And Dianne Feinstein, THAT'S A NATIVE-BORN SAN FRANCISCAN THERE! :D

I think when Rick Warren speaks, it's been suggested that people turn around in protest.

I'm looking forward to Elizabeth Alexander. But wow, I can't imagine the pressure!

What did you think of Elizabeth Alexander? So many people are ripping her apart :( But imagine writing a poem for the occasion -- oh so difficult -- and performing it in front of the WORLD.
