Has anyone seen information about tickets to the Neighborhood Unaugural Ball? I have sent a message to Congresswoman Holmes Norton, I've called the PIC office number (202-651-2009), and I've bookmarked any and every site associated with the Inauguration and have yet to find information about getting these tickets!

I am a DC resident (for almost 8 years now) and a registered voter (I have voted in almost every election) and would at least like to receive the tickets, especially if a portion of them are going to be available for DC residents. I am getting frustrated because it seems like DC residents are getting the short end of the stick when it comes to the Inauguration. Congresswoman Holmes Norton had to even do a lottery to give out the 100 Standing Room Only tickets to the swearing-in that her office received to give to DC registered voters!

I don't think it's fair that DC residents aren't given first dibs on all inaugural events and activities. It's not fair!!
