Only if they didn't throw the frozen tomato-ball at the limo instead--could make a heck of a dent in the new wheels!

Nah...that thing is armored far beyond the power of a frozen tomato to hurt it. Now if we want to see dents, how 'bout some of those protesting ninnies banging their heads into the new limo. Guarantee the limo would win. I'd pay to see that.

The First Lady looked beautiful and the music was truly spectacular. Andrea Bocelli was his usual breathtaking self and the Gatlin Bros. were wonderfully inspirational.

CNN and MSNBC had coverage for quite a while...until the president left, but they broke for commercial frequently and so I was switching back and forth.

It looks terribly cold in DC and I just saw a behind the scenes report from a freeper who is in attendance as a volunteer who said many people visiting from far away are not appropriately dressed for the cold.

I liked the song the Gatlin Brothers sang. Wondered if they wrote it especially for the occasion, because the lyrics were so perfect.

I think Laura should wear warmer shoes, as long as the shoes are warm enough she'll be okay in the cool weather.

I'd never heard the song before and wondered if they wrote it specially for the occasion too.

I don't know if you saw Larry (?) Gatlin on CNN in an interview. He was very funny and said with a twinkle in his eye that he frequently writes about and talks about God, get over it. LOL

He is very good friends with the president and when asked what they talk about he responded that he tells the president he loves him and thanks him for doing a good job for the country.

Actually, etiquette be danged. Folks in their 80's are delicate, even if they are in generally good health. I'm not sure how good it was for them to be out sitting around in such cold for so long.

I didn't see it. Recorded it for viewing tonight. But I did happen to catch the Gatlin Brothers' song when I was home for a late lunch (Pacific time).

I agree. I believe Woodruff said they had heated pillows on their laps but it does nothing for frozen ears. I'm surprised they didn't heat the area they sat in and thought at least three sides were enclosed in glass. I do hope necessary precautions are taken when they all view the parade tomorrow.

I hope so. Don't want anyone getting sick.

BTW there's some pretty scary news on another thread about a federal judge ordering the District of Columbia to turn over informtion about inaugural security to protest groups, including a terrorist-linked group. If you're interested, here's the link: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1324236/posts

I agree.

I'm glad someone does. They had infants and elderly people in that VIP box. They should have had something more than just heated pillows. The presidential reviewing stand for the parade looks fully enclosed this year. Remember four years ago when it rained on the first row of VIP's because the roof didn't come out all the way over the reviewing stand?

Thanks for the link. I don't know what to make of the story. It said the group will get information from the last inaugural, which could very well be obsolete by now. But the judge should be kicked off the bench (and possibly imprisoned) for giving them even that much.

Absolutely. I can't imagine what the rationale is for: (1) the lawsuit the protestors brought to get their hands on the security info, and (2) the judge turning it over to them.

You would think the judge would ask them why they want this information--why are they going to all this trouble to get it? It's a little unsettling.

I know. It's bizzare. I'm sure you're right that security measures have changed from four years ago, and are far tougher for this first post 9/11 inaugural. But it adds another layer of worry to the already heavily burdened security forces.

He does, although I really don't think he was unhappy at that prior event. Photographs don't provide context. They are just a frozen moment in time.

Heh heh. I like the way you think.

I hope this is all repeated on C-Span. I've got a full day tomorrow, w/a bunch of leftie academics no less, but maybe I'll wear my Veterans of Foreign Wars flag pin. It has a big 'V' and a flag. They're so ignorant of the military, they'll all think it is for Bush's 'victory,' which is fine by me.

I'm such a scamp.
