This amazed me: you are not allowed to bring any signs or posters into the area of the inauguration that is going to take place on January 20th, 2005. Was this rule in place at the last inauguration? If it wasn't, it was likely put in place due to the anti-Bush turnout at said inauguration. To me this is a violation of free speech. If I want to protest Bush's inauguration, I want to have a sign. If I want to support it, I would also want to have a sign.
