Not sure if this qualifies as a code magenta or puce, but Inauguration Security Enlists Snipers as four million people are expected in D.C. for the Jan 20, 2009 Inauguration of Barack Obama.
Even this blogging gnat in faraway Georgia knows an entire family driving up to Washington for the event and fortunately for them, a family member lives nearby so accomodations are no problem (good thing!)
And what a crush it would be if a sharpshooter had to pop someone, wouldn't it?
Think I'll soon be taking another gander at the Inauguration 2009 chart with closer attention to safety concerns now that the Oath's festivities are drawing near and snipers are mapping out their best locations.
Here's the 2009 Inauguration chart with midpoint pictures in English (and a few are troubling but midpoint pics are all-none-or-some possibilities, not certainties), and other comments - but remember I wrote it months ago when it was difficult to believe that Bush and Cheney would ever be pried from the White House!
Here's a heads-up to the 3 or 4 readers of this blog who kindly leave me comments: I love comments! But Blogger's comments moderation set-up doesn't tell me which posts comments are left for as I okay them, so if I don't reply to you it's probably because I'm having to search for your remarks after I publish them.
Comments on recent posts are easy to discover. But if you comment on an older post, I may never figure it out.
So if you think of it when commenting, it would expedite matters if you mention the post's title or subject in your remarks to ID its location! It's just crazy, I know, but there it is. My duh, no doubt.
Thanks a bunch, Jude
