If you're going to be in D.C. for the Inauguration this Tuesday...

...Do not pack the following, per the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies' list of prohibited items:

* Firearms and ammunition (either real or simulated)
* Explosives of any kind (including fireworks)
* Knives, blades, or sharp objects (of any length)
* Mace and/or pepper spray
* Sticks or poles
* Pocket or hand tools, such as “Leatherman”
* Packages
* Backpacks
* Large bags
* Duffel bags
* Suitcases
* Thermoses
* Coolers
* Strollers
* Umbrellas
* Laser pointers
* Signs
* Posters
* Animals (other than service animals)
* Alcoholic beverages
* Other items that may pose a threat to the security of the event as determined by and at the discretion of the security screeners

So leave your butter knife at home. And if you're a new parent, I hope you've invested in one of those nifty sling things.
