If I get one more phone call from someone asking about what "we" are doing for Barack Obama's inauguration, I'll scream. "We" are not doing anything and no you cannot stay with me or my family during the inauguration. Why? Because we're all getting the hell out of dodge. Why? D.C. could barely handle All-Star weekend which only had 1/2 million people in attendance, so how in the world do they expect to manage an anticipated 6 million? Businesses including bars and restaurants will be open until 5 a.m. Traffic is already beastly; you have to buy metrocards in advance for the week of the inauguration; D.C. is already off the hook -- still. Sounds like a recipe for disaster to me, which is why I will be watching this historic moment from my living room in North Carolina.
