*explanation- last year i was blessed with tickets on the Capitol grounds for the inauguration of our first African-American president (please, let's be civil. this was history in the making). my mother is a fairly well connected member of the GOP in VA (ok, she was 10th district chair). without my asking, called in a big favor the day before tix were distributed to House and Senate members with the Chief of Staff of Congressman Frank Wolf for me....i will also be photographing*...
