Tuesday Cross Currents with Lilith Wood

Inauguration Morning!
I'm not doing an inaugural-themed show-- partly because I think anyone who's listening to my show right now instead of watching a big screen TV is possibly seeking refuge from all things inaugural. I will, however, start off with a song for the First Lady and her golden dress.
