    ONE YEAR GONE: The Death of Class
    by Gary Graham

    President George W. Bush left office a year ago today. The occasion was marked for me, not so much as the grand event of inaugurating our first black President, as it was a societal harbinger of ominous times ahead. Mr. Bush congratulated Mr. Obama warmly, embracing him with the camaraderie reserved for that elite membership of U.S. presidents. The accompanying catcalls and boo’s cast a pall upon what was heretofore a somber, and joyous occasion; but now colored a sick patina as the true vitriol and hateful venom rose with cruel and vindictive openness. The taunting jeers, the rude remarks, the derision of contempt. Well…there goes the neighborhood, I thought to myself.

    It seemed that occasion marked another milestone in America: the death of class.

    And long before the new politics of Chicago-style thuggery became evident in the new administration, I was appalled at the sheer intensity of hatred for President Bush.
