With the inauguration now over, it’s time for DC to return to normal. Well, easier said than done. Yes, the nets and fences and road closure that tangled the nation’s capital last weekend have gone away, but this city has a way of never really reaching that condition called “normal” – rather, it tends to flit from event to event and mess to mess.
Three months ago, we were in full Election Mode. Three weeks ago, we were falling off the fiscal cliff. January began with fleets of moving trucks bringing new members to Capitol Hill and carrying away the belongings of those who had retired or lost. Three days ago, we were ushering in the second presidency of Barack Obama; and three hours ago the area was still trying to gain its footing after an inch – yes, an inch – of snow. Normal DC? We don’t even know what that is anymore.
