Security measures hinder presidential inauguration celebrations

By Anthony Glynn | Jan. 27, 2005, midnight | In Print »

On Thursday, Jan. 20, I started my journey at 10:05 a.m. at Loews L'Enfant Plaza Hotel, located a little less than a mile away from the capital.

The main reason for the delay was the painstakingly slow security measures taken by the administration. I went through three security stations in that hour and 22 minutes, but there were no metal detectors in sight, and when I was being checked for weapons, only my jacket was patted down.
