Monday was a moderately historic day, as our key executive branch leaders took their oath of office. 

They put on a nice program. Here are few shots taken by our intrepid intern before and after the ceremony – for those of you who weren’t able to be there:

  1. It’s probably worth noting that one element common to the maintenance of power throughout history was conspicuously absent: war. Up until a few hundred years ago, the power to govern little mountain republics like ours was often maintained or transferred by bloodshed. Our process was a little more peaceful, thankfully. Our system, for all its faults, provides a civil way whereby power is temporarily entrusted to leaders, then transferred to others when their time is up. Worth thinking about.
