Inauguration 2009: Jim Moran Tries To Be My Friend With Inauguration Tickets

Updating you in my personal quest to get Inauguration tickets, after Jim Webb sent me an e-mail telling me I’m not getting any tickets I got an e-mail from Jim Moran. Here’s the top of the e-mail:

First off I want to say that my friend status with you is going to be dependent on if you hook me up with tickets or not. I’ll prolly continue to vote for you however- you are doing a pretty good job. The letter goes on to not confirm nor deny my chance for InaugurationĀ  tickets- just some ideas to think about if you don’t get any, however I do like those 198 to 17,000 odds.

Like Webb’s e-mail Moran hints at Jumbo-tron screens so that is looking like it’s going to happen. He also sent me a link to a map of the parade route in case I wanted to try that instead. He also hinted at the possibility of Cell phone congestion, so expect to be cut off from the world if you enter the “secure perimeter.”

Man I still haven’t decided if I’m going to try and go but it’s seems like I’m climbing a mounting or going to Jupiter- I have to worry about bathrooms, walking, and communications. I better bring some MREs or maybe some signal flares in case I need help… on second thought maybe flares wouldn’t be a good idea.

    You should send him a note back that says "Pleeeeeeease! Pretty Please with Sugar on Top! I’ll be your best friiiend!"

    That always worked in 4th grade. Oh wait, no it didn’t.

    I got the same response when I sent a note the week after the election. Basically, you should hunker down and wait for the Inauguration storm to pass.
