It is against the law to have Inauguration Day on a Sunday because then they would have to pay the employees who set up and patrol the Capitol area Sunday pay.  When the 20th falls on a Sunday, then the public inauguration happens on Monday the 21st, so the municipal employees can be paid holiday pay for Martin Luther King Day.

A bunch of senseless hoopla was made about the Clinton photo bomb during Kelly Clarkson’s singing and of Beyonce lip-synching the National Anthem.  The most disappointing part of the festivities was when Alicia Keys changed one of the words of her song to “Obama is on Fire”  She should have sang “Ahmnodt on Fire” instead because I still think I would have made a better President.
