For those of us lucky enough to work from home or have a television nearby, the inauguration swearing-in begins at 11:30, followed by Obama's address to the nation. The parade is at 3:45 and those of you without tickets, good luck. There are at least 2 million people in D.C. as I write this and more still to come. Obama is not in the parade, by the way, he will be watching from the White House. Speaking of which, it sure is nice to look at a building in our nation's capital and not be filled with loathing, for a change.
