President Barack Obama
When President Barack Obama takes the oath of office, he'll place his hand on a Bible owned by Martin Luther King Jr. and which a Marietta man helped restore.

Among the hundreds of thousands of people who are packing Washington, D.C., for the (ceremonial) inauguration: Georgians who shelled out big bucks to attend posh balls and soirees. When in Rome and all that.

"Counterfeit tickets and counterfeit money not only hurts our business, but has destroyed Atlanta." Damn you to hell, counterfeit tickets!
