Good humor and a certain salty Lutheran irreverence are necessary on the day of a presidential inauguration to make sure we don't believe every exaggeration spoken in the excitement of the occasion. You may remember the inauguration of a university president some years on the first anniversary of his inauguration ago. After two days of festivities and speeches suggesting that the fate of half of Western culture revolved about the decisions that would be made by the new president, a friend put his hand on his shoulder and said, "'Look, George, forget all that stuff. You have three main jobs: to provide parking for the faculty, football for the alumni, and sex for the students."
