Frugal Entertainment




    The Brown inaugural is under way, with the Pledge of Allegiance, just recited by student from a military-themed charter school that Brown founded.

    This reflects the frugality of a simple ceremony: Brown had instructed that there be no paid entertainment, in a nod to the times and the budget. Now, an Oakland school choir is performing the national anthem. Beautifully, I might add.
