ObamaStock '09

So a friend of mine (who's a veteran of predential inaugurations - been to the past 4 in D.C.) messaged me today saying he's leaving town for Obama's Inaug.

He actually works in downtown D.C. and gave me the heads up about a meeting he was in with the head of homeland security yesterday.

Pretty much it's going to be really spooky to say the least.

"5 million people, 250,000 tickets. 10,000 police, no food, water, concesons, chairs. Bad weather, and a National Mall that holds only about 3 million for the Capitol Steps to Abe's lap and a METROrail with a capacity of 2 million per DAY. Plus, the portajohns now outnumber everything else downtown."

He made a good point too, he said all it takes is one nut to try and start a riot and things could get REALLY bad.

That's crazy. A crap-load of people in a small place is never a good idea. I hope for the sake of all Americans nothing bad happens. We'll be watching from Canada!

I don't like to say it but ten to one there will be rioting...all of that spells nothing but chaos. I hope nothing bad happens

I hope nothing tragic goes down, that certainly doesn't sound like a place I would want to be either.
