It sucks about Amtrak being sold out, because you can easily walk from Union Station to the mall (and the Lincoln Mem) and totally avoid Metro.

Too funny! For real. Any hassle is totally worth it!! It's historic, it's U2 and it's President Obama. Come off it people.

I am so excited and thankful!!!

FYI I think the Foggy Bottom Metro station will be better than Smithsonian because you just get off the Metro and walk straight down 23rd street and that street ends at the Lincoln Mem. It may avoid the huge Smithsonian station crowds.

I just did a Google street view walk of it, and it looks like an easy walk.

Try the bus, my friend and I got really cheap bus tickets from NYC to DC that day.

I don't think anyone is driving, but here's a map of road closures on the 18th

http://www.pic2009.org/page/-/blog/R...01.13.09_5.pdf

I think I'm going to take the King St. metro to Foggy Bottom. I think the first train leaves at 7:11 a.m., so I'll get to Kings St. at 7 and see what happens

Here's some more information from the inauguration website:

If anyone is going to the inauguration, I have a list of which stations will be entrance/exit only and during which hours. I'll post it if anyone wants.

so i'm hearing rumors that everyone only gets one song (here's money being placed on "Pride") but that there will be space for people to do duets and stuff (here's more money being placed on the MJB version of "One" which i seem to be the only person on Interference who loves that version).

also rumors of 500,000 people on the mall.

we're still going to go.

Ugh and Ugh. Pride is fine, but I'm not really a fan of it live.

I was hoping for some new album previews.

Just seeing U2 performing live again will make it not matter what the song choice is!
