Missing the Event
Holding a gold-edged ticket didn't necessarily help people get in. By the time Michael Jones, Todd Steigler, and Steigler's mother, Barbara Steigler, got past the protesters at the checkpoints, the inauguration was over. They were not amused.

"If you're talking about security, standing in a crowd of people for three hours is not secure," said Todd Steigler, 38, who traveled to Constitution Avenue this morning from Randallstown, Md. "It's supposed to be the inauguration of a president. If you have a different viewpoint that's fine, but to come here and stage a rally is inappropriate." --Tara Bahrampour
