So my cousin (PJ) wanted to go see the inauguration. I think as a child he was dropped on his head.....repeatedly as he is a huge Obama supporter.
Anyway after a few calls I was able to wrangle him a few tix.
How close did he end up? Well, he was in the same area as the Tuskegee airmen and actually ended up sitting in Katy Perry's seat after she got moved to a better seat. I am not sure how much better it could get short of her on the stage.
When I went to see W. for his first nomination he was a dot on the horizon. I don't think my cousin had the same problem with his view. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10152460401000523&set=a.10152460399990523.960399.580170522&type=1&comment_id=18648732&ref=notif¬if_t=photo_reply
