Why did Presidential Inaugurations move from March 4th to January 20th, you ask?  It's a lame reason.  No, really.  Lame.  In 1933 Congress passed the 20th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, nicknamed, the "Lame Duck Amendment."  It was "crafted to cut down the time 'lame duck' lawmakers," those that lost re-election, "held office following Election Day."    story           

Principle in the type:  "I am introducing a new idea.  Try to care less.  Practice ambivalence.  Learn to let go of wanting it.  Treat your career like a bad boyfriend.  Here's the thing.  Your career won't take care of you.  It won't call you back or introduce you to its parents.  Your career will openly flirt with other people while you are around.  It will forget your birthday and wreck your car.  Your career will blow you off if you call it too much. . . . Your career will never marry you."    Amy Poehler
