Default Inauguration Pictures...

There are a TON of pictures here, and some will be more interesting to some than to others, but I was flabbergasted by the opening aerial shots which depict the enormity of the crowds. The people literally look like ants swarming, and I think it truly gives an accurate depiction of what "millions" really means.

On the day after America’s biggest yard party, it was all about the monumental cleanup.

The city’s trash trucks have already hauled away 90 tons of inaugural garbage with at least 40 more tons left to go, said Mafara Hobson, spokeswoman for D.C. Mayor Adrian M. Fenty (D).

“People left behind a lot of trash. A lot of it was the vendors along the parade route, too,” Hobson said. “They left behind Obama hats, Obama bags, Obama socks.”

Yes.. it definitely is. I used to live in Gaithersburg, MD and Mt. Airy, MD - I've been there plenty... most recently a few years ago - only I didn't leave the MALL area - I took my boyfriend to the museums for the day... not the nicest or cleanest place I must say... I can't believe I used to go club hopping there all the time... Once I got older I got lazy/wise and stuck to Baltimore and Frederick for my nights out!

I've been to DC many times and I'd have to say the dirtiest city I've visited was Philly, when I visted there it was much worse then the times I've been to DC.

Sounds like DC needed to contract the prisoners that clean up after Mardi Gras parades. They would have had 140 tons of trash gone in hours. Those guys are amazing!!!
