It's About Time -- On Our New President, Barack Obama
"...the surest road to the Common Good."
So maybe he didn't exactly have us in mind when he said this, but we like it anyway. We here at Common Good Books just want to take a moment to congratulate our new President--Thank you President Obama, please keep us inspired. We'll do our best here in St. Paul to spread the good word and hope through books with our fine selection of books and newly-repatriotic booksellers--even if repatriotic isn't a word and even though Mencken said that "Patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel."
We'll also do our best to update and maintain our blog, which may or may not silently emerge to shake off the foundations laid down in, oh, let's say, the last eight (8) years and carry forth the hope and promise that President Obama brings to our nation. Shall we fall short of that you have our apologies, but we'll give it a shot.
On a more serious note, our sincerest congratulations to President Obama and may he help lead us out of the dark, inscrutable quandary he and the rest of the nation must endure every day. For what it's worth President, we're in your corner.
