The Next Maya Angelou

In case you haven’t been paying attention, tomorrow is the inauguration of Barack Obama. And reading a poem at the inauguration — following in the footsteps of Maya Angelou, and Robert Frost — will be Yale professor Elizabeth Alexander.

So, in case you were the person not planning on watching the inaguration tomorrow, you no longer have an excuse. Not only will the Trumbull High School marching band be playing, but now the inaugural poet is also a nutmegger. In other words, if you don’t watch, we’ll make you move to Texas. You don’t want that, do you?
