Inaugural Balling

The Inauguration was quite the love fest.


I read in USA Today that although a record 1.8 million people congregated for the Inauguration, there were no arrests of anybody as of Tuesday at 6 p.m. Well, later that evening, I witnessed what may have been the only arrest, and it was inside the Western Inaugural Ball, about an hour before the Obamas and Bidens danced.


A buzzing group of eight cops berated, ‘cuffed and extracted a young couple that looked terribly embarrassed and a bit tipsy. The offense: copulating in public. Oh yes, it was a veritable love fest!


I had to wait my turn, as I was the next occupant of their “bridal suite” – the one stall in the men’s room.


That young couple should be Obama's first Presidential pardon!
