At first, I was a little puzzled why anyone would try to salt old wounds two months after the election. Then I realized that next thursday is a federal holiday. (Duh!)
...but Inauguration Day isn't actually a federal holiday. It's a local holiday that the federal (and most local) governments recognize in the D.C. and the immediately surrounding counties in Maryland and Virginia. Feds elsewhere have to work.
Only to those that actually work inside the beltway. :-) The truth is, there are far more federal employees outside the D.C. area than in it.
