Smart is the New Cool

I'm not going to try to compete with inauguration coverage today, so I just thought I'd point out some interesting stories ...

Like the NYT story about the inauguration and how it may help female scientists.

Or about Michelle Obama's dress (I loved that the family was color-coordinated on election day. Now they seem to have done the opposite, each person with their own bold color, to the same great effect).

How Barack Obama is stimulating the national economy with all the sales of t-shirts, piggy banks, basketball jerseys, yo-yos, thongs, cuff links, and other merchandise bearing his name or likeness.
