This is beautiful, the opening of the National Museum of African-American History and culture.



Saturday's dedication of the National Museum of African-American History and Culture brought together the president who signed into law the funding for the museum and the president who was in office during its completion.

But the gathering of the 43rd and 44th first couples also saw the reuniting of two unlikely friends.
Over the past eight years, former President George W. Bush and First Lady Michelle Obama have been seen becoming increasingly chummy. At public events, the two can often be found sitting next to each other, sharing a laugh or lending a hand to hold.
Saturday's ceremony was no exception. During the event, Obama reached over and grabbed Bush into a hug as their spouses clapped and looked on.

2. I have to say that is one of the most striking images I have seen recently. I must be jaded.

Invading Iraq was the decision that ultimately lead to the biggest disaster in my lifetime: disbanding the Iraqi military / de-Baathification.

If what is happening in Syria ends up the catalyst to a direct and kinetic confrontation between the US and Russia, it's even worse. I will quietly recognize, in the few seconds between the white flash and the trailing sound, heat, pressure, and radiation, that it was all due to one decision in 2003.
