I couldn't go but...
I'm elated that Tim Black is there.
From A.P. Wire, "In Chicago, everything stops for Obama Inauguration":
Ninety-year-old Timuel Black says he all but lost hope for the country when Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Sen. Robert Kennedy were assassinated in 1968. Now he is going to Washington for an event he never thought he'd live to see..."This gives me a deeper faith and hope that the impossible we can do," said Black, the grandson of slaves who was once an adviser to King and is attending the inaugural at the invitation of Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin. "What we have accomplished ... I considered impossible."
