Children Included on List of Inauguration Security Threats
Inauguration day? Leave the brats at home—it ain't day care. "Officials are banning all strollers and backpacks and make a point of saying on their Web site that 'there are no childcare facilities provided to attendees,'" reports the Washington Post. We support this. Obama scores one point in the "we hate your kids/babies in bars" meme! But seriously, those strollers could contain bombs dressed as babies:
According to the Senate's official inauguration website, "Due to increased security and space constraints, strollers are not permitted on the Capitol grounds."
Greg Allen, a New York father of two (and blogger, of course) complains, "It's like, 'No history for you, kids.'" Nope. That's what TV is for!
