Maybe They Won’t Come

Once upon a time, there was a historic election in the United States. Everyone wanted to be part of the party (well, if one believes the MSM). Four years later, there was another historic election. Half of the everyones want to be part of the party somewhere else:

Some 1.8 million people were at the National Mall for Obama’s first inauguration; this time, city officials expect there will be more than a million fewer visitors, the AP reports. Hotels sold out months in advance in 2009 at a daily of $600-plus, but for 2013 some places still have half their rooms available, and DC residents aren’t too likely to be able to rent out their homes for hundreds of dollars a night.

One wonders how many tons of trash will be picked up from the National Mall this time?
