Here's the ABC website with a transcript of the inaugural address and a video of the address.

As of 12:01, today, January 20th, the White House has a new webpage. The first blog post on it promises transparency of government to the point that it says this: "One significant addition to WhiteHouse.gov reflects a campaign promise from the President: we will publish all non-emergency legislation to the website for five days, and allow the public to review and comment before the President signs it." Wow. I wonder who is going to read all of the posts, many of which, given the tenor of comments I see on other blogs, will be venomous. Let's hope for a new era of civility on the web, as well as the transparency promised by our new President and the new Administration. Perhaps information will again flow freely from our government to the people.
