Nota Bene

It appears that everyone wants to go to the presidential inauguration of Barack Obama. In an article in today's Newark Advocate, members of the U.S. House and Senate have been inundated with requests for inaugural tickets:

...Rep. Zack Space, the Dover Democrat who won a second term to the U.S. House and serves Ohio's 18th District, which includes eastern Licking County, has received more than 600 requests for inaugural tickets, according to spokesman Stuart Chapman.

The office of Sen. Sherrod Brown, a Democrat who campaigned for Obama, already has heard from 5,000 people who want 20,000 tickets. The requests have come by phone, e-mail and letters....

It will be a big event and everyone wants to be there to be a part of it.
