Inaugural Port-o-Potties

A big ceremonial event involves untold numbers of details that most of us never think about. Consider the upcoming presidential inauguration. In anticipation of the thousands of people who will crowd into the heart of Washington, port-o-potties have sprouted like dandelions on an untended lawn. They circle the museums and march down side streets. The most impressive group I've seen so far is the battalion lined up near the Canadian Embassy, ready for duty. Reports abound that tape is being used to obliterate the company name on the ones that might end up on camera during the parade. Let's all offer a word of gratitude to Don's Johns for filling a need when crowds gather, whether it is to applaud or to protest.
