Officials to Inaugural Ticket Holders: "We Thought You Were Kidding About Showing Up!"

Unbelievable! In today's
Wapo article:

"Congressional organizers assumed there would be a significant number of no-shows in the ticketed areas, as at previous inaugurations, Gainer said. "For this inauguration, everyone showed up," he said."

Huh? With Congressional offices inundated with calls and emails for the tickets, pages of ads on Craigslist and even laws passed to prevent scalping of tickets yet the Inaugural officials didn't think everyone holding a coveted ticket would really show up?

The Nation's Capital will celebrate the effective, efficient security measures during the recent Inauguration festivities at the National Bollard Festival.
