So here it is…the ushering in of a new era in American political history.  Or at least, that’s what they say.  I guess the jury is still out here on the show.  Mark and I both believe that Barack Obama is an agent of change, but we aren’t sure what kinds of change he is going to bring to the table.  Time will tell, I guess.  You can catch the Oath of Office and Inaugural Address on Sunny 101.9, WKQS-fm.  Coverage starts at 11:30 am today.

Thanks to Jeff Spencer and Jackie Love with the Vertigo Theater Company of Marquette stopping in to tell us about their latest production entitled, “Fat Pig”.  It’s a story about plus-size people dating and what kinds of pressures are put on them by society.  The show runs this weekend at the Black Box Theater at NMU and you can hear more about the show in our “Interviews” section or head to their website at www.vertigomqt.com .
