Ann Arborite Andy Brush is in D.C. for Barack Obama’s inauguration. We’ll add to this article any updates he’s able to file through the day. So far:
Jan 20 3:10 p.m. A whole block of idling dump trucks along D Street southwest of White House. Security or emergency prep?
Jan 20 12:47 p.m. All done now. Unbelievable. Looks like the right person. Now the hard part. Shared the moment with folks from OK, VA, MD, OH, MI
Jan 20 8:45 a.m. We are in place @ Washington Monument. Full from here to the east. Arrived here to Springsteen singing The Rising. Sunrise too.
Jan 20 8:00 a.m. (approx) 18th St. heading south is like Hoover on football Saturday, but more so.
Jan 20 7:00 a.m. We are leaving for the National Mall right now. We stayed in Potomac. Getting on the Metro to head in. From a glance at the TV in the lobby, we won’t be the first ones there. MLK Day on the mall was a beautiful thing.
Jan 19 4:00 p.m. (approx) Muggin’ for the boom camera on MSNBC set on the mall.
Jan. 19 3:00 p.m. (approx) Loads of people checking out the Capitol Building where Obama will become prez tomorrow. Security barriers make moving very difficult.
Jan. 19 12:00 p.m. (approx) At the Michigan party. Granholm, Levin, Stabenow. Out of hot chocolate and coffee. Now off to find food.
Jan. 19 11:00 a.m. (approx) Capitol South Metro stop a madhouse – with happy people – all escalators just all switched to exit mode.
Jan 18 6:42 p.m. Sorry, got it wrong. It is: National Union of Friendly Americans. Now meeting more friendly people near the White House.
Jan 18 5:33 p.m. On the mall. Good feelings. Griendly people. Witnessed founding of: National Union of Friendly People.
