Remember when you thought Frank might be the Unabomber?

So, it’s weird.

I am watching You’ve Got Mail again. Because I love this movie (even though I don’t own a copy) & I quite enjoy Meg Ryan pre-Botox.

I wonder how she would feel about our new President. My parents obviously helped shape my political views, although I believe I am more liberal than either of them. Would she be as excited about the prospect of what can be accomplished in the next 4 years? This has nothing to do with the movie or anything, but it’s also something I thought about earlier this week during the inauguration, the day after what would have been her 57th birthday.
