World's Saddest Disclaimer
In case you haven't made your final Inauguration Night plans, be sure to read the fine print on the ticket page for the bash at House of Blues.
"The Inaugural Ball for Barack Obama" is selling entry for $55-$100.
But tucked deep in the details is this disclaimer: "This is a party for the inauguration. President Obama will not be in attendance."
Really? Really? What, he's got something else to do tonight?

We're just trying to imagine the angry customer who shows up -- at a House of Blues -- in Houston -- on Inauguration Night and demands his money back because Obama's not there.
If the new president changes his mind and shows up, we'll be sure to let you know.
