Inauguration Aggregation

Welcome to your daily dose of inauguration news! Here are the headlines we’re reading this morning.

A $50,000 donation to Barack Obama's Presidential Inaugural Committee guarantees you four tickets to the swearing-in. 

They're coming by plane, train, automobile…and cruise ship? Yup, that's right—Obama supporters in Florida have chartered a cruise ship to take them to the inauguration.

The American Red Cross is preparing for record crowds during the inauguration. In a WUSA 9 report, senior director of emergency and international services Joseph Sciuto says, "The City of DC normally has 479 thousand people. We're expecting 3 to 5 milllion. That's a one thousand percent increase basically."

The Washington Post tell employers to give employees the day off on January 20.
