Capital Comment Blog > Inauguration 2009
Welcome to your daily dose of inauguration news! Here are the headlines we’re reading this morning.
WTOP's Adam Tuss is the bearer of bad news: There will be one toilet for every 6,849 people on Inauguration Day.
Salon.com's Mike Madden lays out exactly how far the inauguration madness has gone. He writes, "When public transportation officials start telling people not to take public transportation, you know things are getting weird."
Perhaps understandably, Chicagoans will be coming to Washington in droves.
And apparently, poets and poetry lovers are getting all tingly with anticipation for the inauguration, hoping that Obama will include a poet in the swearing-in ceremony. He wouldn't be the first: John F. Kennedy did it, and so did Bill Clinton. Who knew?
