yes, it's sad.

Last weekend, the radio was on and Son heard the phrase "Senator Obama." He turned to me and asked, "Is Senator O-ba-ma from Star Wars?" Until then, I guess, he hadn't heard the word "senator" except in 1 and 2.

When you think about it, "Obama" would be a perfectly good Star Wars name. Fits right in with Amidala, Windu, Kenobi, Yoda, Organa.

Well my son saw a picture of Obama in his suit and said, "Hey, it's Men In Black!"

So, will Son be getting any Star Wars paraphenalia for Christmas?

Hmm, I don't know about the paraphrenalia. He'd probably like it--I'll have to suggest it to the grandparents and aunt & uncle.

MIB--ha! Would it be objectifying to muse about whether our president-elect and Will Smith are of equal hottness?

A week or so ago, he saw the trailer to MIB (Alex showed him). Then when he saw the box of The Complete Third Season of The West Wing, he asked if that was MIB. I guess they really bring it all together.
