Today, you are a member of… Other Firsts
In keeping with the spirit of last week’s firsts, such as the Large Hadron Collider’s smashing success and tomfoolery’s calendar notch of April introductions, this week, members, is all about being primordial, primogenial and primary, but in an asymmetrical fashion. Sure the First means being number one, tall and singular in precedence and posture. But it also means — as in the case of George Washington, the first president of the United States of America — the sixth, April 6th 1789 to be exact, the day the Electoral College got out their green visors for the first time and counted votes for the Office of the Chief Executive Officer. So as the week marking a first on the sixth, and 221 years of electoral doings in the union, get your first on but don’t rely on the of legendary solidtude of singularities.
