With the build up to the inauguration of Barack Obama as the 44th president there were a lot of stories to choose from. Here are a few videos that I did for The Washington Times about various aspects of the preparations.
This video is a story on Charlie Brotman who has announced every inaugural parade since Dwight Eisenhower’s.
With all traffic into the district essencially cut off, a local water taxi company was offering boat service from Alexandria, VA to the Washington on inauguration morning.
Many people, seeking inaugural ball bargains, looked to vintage shops and thrift stores for unique fashions. I shot this video at Goodwill’s Northeast store on South Dakota Ave.
Dr. Eugene Williams discusses his new book, “Words – Cross and Across.” I book he wrote to teach young people vocabulary using the speeches and writings of Barack Obama.
