    I have girlfriend from H.S. that moved to Delaware soon after graduation. She lives in a "vacation" type of town on the coast & says she has had coffee several times throughout the years with Biden. I says very nice things about him.

    She is going to the Inauguration, she is very excited & called me the day her pass came for it. I hope she takes a ton of pictures & she is coming to our wedding.

    Oh No!

    What time was the speech? I recorded something but all they talked about this morning is the church, the tea & the Ball, and the amount of people.

    He has given a few speeches today, but the big one was right after the swearing in, around ten this morning. You can find its text EVERYWHERE.


    I am watching the parade. Great stuff.

    10 AM our time...they are restreaming it on CNN.com so you can catch it there...very moving. not just because it was him, but because what he said is so pertanant (sp?) to what is going on.

    If they're sent back whence they were brought, they're likely to be killed:

    "But that is not stopping some countries from moving on their own. Portugal was the first to offer to take inmates who have been cleared for release but who cannot be sent to their countries for security reasons."

    "Wolfgang Schäuble, the conservative interior minister, said Wednesday it was up to the United States to deal with the prisoners. "If they come from countries whose human rights record makes it impossible for them to be sent back there, then they will have to remain in the United States," Schäuble told the Frankfurter Rundschau newspaper."

    One example, there are some ethnic Tibetans (I think, might be another ethinicity) among the detainees. If they're sent back to China, they are incredibly likely to be killed.

    Tibetans are incredibly likely to be killed by the Chinese even without being accused of being terrorists.

    So... you're probably right on the ethnicity.
