Change is many ways

Well we had to laugh at this news tidbit which was over looked by most in all the excitement tonight. We were wondering if this was a silent nod to LAAG's anti fireworks position, a snub to China's fireworks exporters or an acknowledgement of Al Gore's position on global climate change. (humor intended here) In any event we find it refreshing that Obama felt that he did not need to cover a million people in the waiting crowd with smoke and ash to make a point. Words were patriotic/historic enough. We have said it before and we will say it again. Patriotism has nothing to do with fireworks. Its standing for principles.

Obama Canceled Fireworks for This Evening

Given all the pomp and pageantry of past events for President-elect Obama, why was tonight's celebration speech so subdued?

That was intentional.

In fact. fireworks were originally planned for this evening, but President-elect Obama canceled them.

"Given the sobriety of the times, he didn't feel they were appropriate," senior adviser David Axelrod tells ABC News.
