It's no secret that I embrace our new president for the role he can play in providing hope to urban youth. I recently wrote about why I am going to DC for the inauguration for a piece on NPR's California Report. Skip ahead to 18:00 (or about halfway on the toolbar) on the streaming audio to hear why I am flying across the country to stand in a giant crowd, in what should be a balmy 20 degrees in January, to see a speck from afar that will be our new president.

Be sure to skip PAST the yiddish singers (unfortunately, not a skill in my repertoire yet) to 18:00.
