Jim from Irregular Times has arrived in downtown Washington D.C. to serve as a marshal at the Oath of Office Demonstration – a gathering of political activists at the southwest corner of Pennsylvania Avenue and 9th Street. The message of the demonstration: Barack Obama needs to treat the Oath of Office as more than just a collection of pretty words. As President of the United States, Obama has a duty to uphold the Constitution.
Jim started out many miles away, hiking in the pre-dawn darkness down the Capital Crescent Trail, and through Georgetown before arriving at the National Mall. He reached an entrance to the inaugural parade route about an hour ago, and should be at the demonstration location right now. The demonstration officially begins at noon, so if you know someone down on the parade route, they ought to have plenty of time to find Jim and have an irregular chat.
