Person of the Whatever II

AP also reports on unprecedented security measures planned for the Bush inauguration and subsequent parade, including plans to search every spectator along the parade route.

Having endured hours of cold-for-D.C. conditions along Pennsylvania Ave. NW on January 20, 1993 for a quick glimpse of Bill Clinton, this sounds like a bit much. The guys with conspicuous sniper rifles on the roofs of buildings along the avenue were more than enough to keep us in line.

The story also indicates that police are expecting some demonstrators. No specific word as to whether plans for them include a "free speech zone" at Judiciary Square or thereabouts.
