All The News That Fits

And Another Reason To Skip The Inauguration…

Posted by Nancy on January 19, 2009

Are you planning to go to Washington to witness Obama’s inauguration? 

The Metro expects to transport 1 million passengers for the event, but is shutting down all their restrooms for security reasons.  Instead, they are placing port-a-johns at each station – at the ratio of one john for every 6,849 people.

Some people are estimating the crowds to reach 5 million people, which is beyond the capacity of the Metro – still, you do the math. 

The Park Services says there will be more port-a-johns on the mall itself.  Just where I would want to “go,” with millions milling around and below freezing temperatures in the forecast.
