Planners gearing up for the crowds on inauguration day may want to recall a moment back in Kentucky around the beginning of 1964. Some guy I'd never seen before started up at Democratic party functions; people were spoiling him and being nice to him the way you do to the designated driver.

--That guy? You don't know? Ah, well last year just before the March on Washington, it dawned on somebody that they needed serious sanitation. He is the guy who said, why yes, he could send a relief party up over the mountains with 100 porta potties. He's a hero.
