Inaugural nudge: Leave the little guys at home

That’s the headline from the Washington Post. Maybe the headline writer is a fan of the book.

Officials are banning all strollers and backpacks and make a point of saying on their Web site that “there are no childcare facilities provided to attendees.” If that hint isn’t enough, they suggest that “extra consideration” be taken by those planning to bring children, noting that “a vast majority of attendees will be in standing room sections and should be prepared to be on their feet for several hours.”

They also helpfully point out that the swearing-in ceremony is an outdoor event “that is typically cold — normally 37 F at noon — and occasionally wet.” In other words: Leave the kiddies at home.
