Poetry in the White House

Oh yeah, that's some change I can believe in. Lots of other bloggers can handle the economic and foreign policy stuff President-elect Obama talked about on today's Meet the Press. Here's what I'm loving.

When it comes to science, elevating science once again, and having lectures in the White House where people are talking about traveling to the stars or breaking down atoms, inspiring our youth to get a sense of what discovery is all about. Thinking about the diversity of our culture and, and inviting jazz musicians and classical musicians and poetry readings in the White House so that, once again, we appreciate this incredible tapestry that's America.
Sweet. I'm not even particular about who they invite to read. I'm just glad that the arts and sciences will get a place of (relative) prominence in this administration.
