    All those red hat volunteers and friendly law enforcement people disappeared. There was no way out to the north, and the only exit on the south that we found was at the Dept of Ag's west end. Then the street was totally packed and police and other officials were plowing through with their sirens blaring- it's damn lucky there wasn't a crush with hundreds of deaths out there. And the Metro stations were rather unprepared for the crush as well, no one managing the long long lines.

    We've got our room reservations in Annapolis, we know the Metro schedule, and the car is getting tuned up..Obama-mania Jan 20 HERE WE COME!!!!!!!!!

      we wandered around for several hours in that cold, cold weather, along with hundreds of thousands of other people, trying to figure out how to get home.  We joked that it seemed like a scene out of Night of the Living Dead.
