Love him, hate him, today is the day we set off in a new direction as a nation.
Some people have already set off. They estimate 2 million people will be on the mall today for the inaguartion. Last night, on one of the endless news channels, they showed what that meant—people would have about as much space as if you were standing on the front page of your newspaper. There is also the quesion of porta-potties. One for every 400 people. And the frigid temps. A balmy high of 30 is expected in the capitol today.
May I just say, that in my youth when I worked in Washington, there was nothing quite as bone-chilling as standing on a Metro platform waiting for a train when its that cold and that windy. I remember it so vividly that I can assure you, I would not be on the mall today.
What about you? Are you going to watch the oath of office? Or are you more interested in what Michelle will wear? I hear as of yesterday, she still hadn’t decided what to wear to the parade OR the 10 balls she must attend. YIKES!
