8:04 AM EDT: Crowds

It's pretty incredible that 800,000 people are calmly and happily marching to see the new Duke and Dutchess (I still don't really understand why they aren't Prince and Princess, but I trust that the queen knows what she's doing on this one.) kiss on the balcony.

I'm not sure that the television commentators are correct in their assertions that this won't happen in the United States.  President Obama's inauguration was an event of this size and scope (bigger, in fact) that went off peacefully.  Probably because everyone was frozen, but, you know, what can you do?
