President's can't use e-mail

This seems really strange to me. it is undersandable that he shouldn't e-mail about matters of state, he should be able to e-mail his friends.

Gotta Give Up The E-Mail Ghost

Before he comes to office, a president has to give up his e-mail
account. For the likes of Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson, that wasn't
much of an issue, but for our recent presidents, it's an anguishing and terrible
thought. As president-elect Obama parts with his BlackBerry, he'll have to learn
how to deal with not being able to rag on other players in his fantasy
basketball league. Jeff Zeleny's NYT story
about president e-mail e-mail today also contains George W. Bush's sad 2000
shout-out to his electronic homeboys:

The Sad Truth is that racism isn't over

Two things.

1) Racism isn't dead, it just took a nap and let Barack sneak into office.
2) This might make some racism more violent in the short term, because of people who feel they need to strike back.

Idealists: Racism Doesn't End With Our First Black President

There is no doubt that Barack Obama's victory in the 2008 Presidential
election is an incredibly historic one; the race barrier for the top job in the
nation has been broken, signifying a giant step forward for the country as a
whole. But the notion that Obama's victory signifies some type of end to all
racism in America is a ridiculous one; while the country has made progress by
electing an African-American leader, there are still signs
that many citizens in the country aren't happy with that decision at all. And
it's not based on Obama's policies, tax plans, or "elitist" background: it's
based on the color of this skin.
