Today in a cafe at lunch, at the table next to mine there's a middle-aged couple and their 20 y.o. son. The son is on the phone, watching inauguration and commenting. Dismissively compares the attendance with that of Obama's. Excitedly reads the news, something about the outraged crowds breaking things somewhere in Washington D.C. The father keeps silence, the mom smiles. He then says: "So what's the plan? Are you guys going to drop me at Berkeley? I need to go to the bathroom first". He leaves the table. The parents are silent. After a while, the mom goes: "Please don't say anything". The father responds: "I'm not saying anything". They continue waiting in silence.
