    Best of luck, and don't be afraid to throw in a good word about Mars too, if you get the chance.
    We're all pulling for this one.

    My Dad showed me the invitation he had gotten to the inauguration. I wasn't sure what was up with that but his explanation was that he'd donated $50 to the campaign.

    uh... it's a public event... you don't need an invitation.

    The invite is a political ploy, but I guess he has to spend people's campaign donations somehow...

    You don't need an invitation to the "Neighborhood" one but there are 10 official inauguration balls and that's the only one you don't. The rest are invite only.

    I got one of those "invites" in the mail too. It's an 8.5 x 11 inch card stock paper, scripted font, says your attendance has been requested to come on down.

    I figured anyone who donated got one.

    Wish I could go down...even if just for the day, even if I had to stand 3.5 miles away from anything.

    Yes, the nicely printed invitation was to the public one. I don't think it's a ploy though. I took as a small tip of the cap to the people who donated, sort of a "commerative" sort of thing.
