HBO-Americans

HBO-Americans were fortunate to be able to see this afternoon a wonderful concert, the kick-off for inaugural festivities,

"Obama's Words Of Hope Cap Star-Studded Concert Featuring Stevie Wonder, Beyonce, Bruce Springsteen, U2, Usher At Lincoln Memorial... Praises Musicians: "Yours Are The Voices I Will Take With Me Every Day I Walk Into That Oval Office"

Americans who can get - and afford - Home Box Office could experience all the above. Yet they could not even then experience gay New Hampshire Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson delivering his opening prayer for all people, as it was not broadcast. It was only heard by attenders.

Except that FOR ALL BUT THE LAST SENTENCE, THE MICROPHONE WAS OFF AND NO ONE COULD HEAR HIM.

Here is Eugene Robinson's prayer. Would it were history.

On Tuesday all Americans will hear a ceremony blessed by a smaller god, invoked by a man who believes homosexuals should not even be in his church.

So much for making a stab at an apology. It killed the apology.
