    I don’t think I saw this one on the blog:
    http://nppa.org/news_and_events/news/2009/01/inauguration.html
    Imagine the security clearance to a device that looks like this does placed on the stand…
    [Very cool; thanks, John. –J.]

    A number of high resolution, public domain, images of the inauguration can be download from http://www.defenseimagery.mil/imagery.html.
    I recommend searching stills, using the search term “inauguration,” and limiting the time window to 20 January 2009.
    Our military had a large role in managing the inauguration. Military photographers — young enlisted personel — recorded the event with DSLRs, and there are some very good photos, some up to professional journalistic standards, that we can download and print. For example, there is an image of the Obamas dancing at one of the balls, taken with a Nikon D3, that combines first class artistic and technical quality. Another shot, taken with a Nikon D300 and an 18-200 zoom, of Obama speaking, shows how the five panes of bulletproof glass distort the view.
    The images include comprehensive metadata including the names of the photographers and descriptions of the event recorded.
    [Cool; thanks for the info, James. –J.]

    I enjoyed all of these…Maybe it’s just me or does Clarence Thomas appear to be dozing off? (in the link Bill posted)
    [I thought he was too angry to sleep. –J.]
