Crowds swarm D.C. for historic moment

Sorry I’ve been absent from this blog for a long while, but GamesAreEvil and now ThePortableGamer.com are swingin and rockin.

Got an email from a high school buddy who lives in DC. He made it to the inauguration, and was then quoted in USA Today. Here’s the quote, then the link:

Subways arriving into Washington from the Maryland suburbs to the north were crowded but not overwhelming.

“I was braced for much worse,” said Ryan Trapani, who lives in a central Washington neighborhood about a mile-and-a-half from the Mall. He had to let only one subway train go by before cramming into a subway car at 7:45 a.m.

Crowds were reasonable because “people got up really, really early,” Trapani said.
