Apart from that, Mrs Lincoln, how was the play?

Excitement mounts ahead of the inauguration of Barack Obama on Tuesday. Curiously, the President Elect himself has decided to travel to Washington DC by train, repeating the same journey made by Abraham Lincoln in 1861 - I can only presume this is because he is the last senator from Illinois since Lincoln to be accede to the post of Commander in Chief.

If I were him, though, I'd stay away from the theatre.
