It's been beautiful in Parkersburg, West Virginia. Could have stayed another week, I'm starting to take a real liking to the place.
It's time for new paint on mine too. I got a little spot of clear coat peel, and then the whole paint job just started kinding of going south on me. Are you going to do it yourself? I took mine to the dealer in Houston, and he recommended an independent shop run by a bodyman who used to work for the stealership who is Mercedes-factory certified. He bid $1500 on it, which I think is either too cheap or the biggest deal I've got in a while, and he swears he will use all Mercedes paint and apply it according to the system appropriate for that model. Whaddya think?
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
