Hope and Opportunity

David Broder writes that the elevation of Nancy Pelosi to Speaker of the House and the inauguration of Deval Patrick as governor of Massachusetts are signs of "a growing sense of inclusiveness and opportunity in this society."

That is probably true, but it will be nice when race and sex become irrelevant in conversations as to who is rising to what position. It was nice yesterday to watch an NFL playoff game in which both teams were lead by black head coaches and to realize that no one in The Oracle's hearing had felt a need to comment on it. It was just another day at the game.

The Oracle is not commenting on it. He is merely commenting on the lack of comment, and he is thankful for it.
