Barak, Barrak, Barrack

presss.JPGOK, he's in. The movers showed up with boxes as the oath was given. Millions cheered his arrival and the Bush departure. Cheney will return to his cave. The easy part is done.

In a speech short and sweet, Barack Obama, president No. 44, said "The time has come..."

To create new jobs, lower health care costs, harness new energy, raise education levels, lessen the nuclear threat, and restore governmental trust.

An astonishing moment. The nation gave a black man not just its vote but its heart.

Yes we can, and did. Now can he?

Today we celebrate. Tomorrow we get real.

By the way, can we learn his name?

On this KOMO site, for example, he's "Barak." Ditto an endless number of local Internet forums and comment postings - even Snohomish Democrats misspelled their candidate's name. 

The site gooseGrade.com estimates that at least 60 million

pages on the Net contain a misspelling of Obama's first name.

Let's go with that education initiative first, Barak, or Barrak, if not Barrack.
