My cousin asked me come to Washington, DC  week before last to help her out with childcare while her husband was out for town for a family emergency.  Thanks to my hoard of  Alaska Airlines miles I was able to do it for a whopping $5. fee for the tickets.  So while I had to leave on the  Sunday before the Inauguration, I was able to soak up the mood and note the sights of the moment.
