This has been one of the most unsettling and inspiring years in memory, with the economic meltdown balanced out by the amazing outcome of the US Presidential election.

To wish you well through the end of the year and into 2009, please find a montage of inspiring speeches and outtakes from famous movies as assembled by Matthew Belinkie. Enjoy!

We’ll be back in 2009 for more recipes and serving suggestions from the Scholarly Kitchen.
