Jefferson Davis Inaugurated Feb 18, 1861

Today is the 145th anniversary of the inauguration of Jefferson Davis as Provisional President of the Confederate States of America, at Montgomery, AL. William Lowndes Yancey said, "The man and hour have met." Davis' inaugural address.

And today is also my thirty-sixth birthday. I can't mark surveys in the 24-35 group anymore. Now I have to mark the middle-aged group of 36-49. O boy. But on the bright side, as Amanda reminded me, I have a 26 year old wife and a one year old son!
