If you follow Geeks Against Bush, the political blog that I also contribute to, you are probably aware that my friends Caleb and Gus are in Washington D.C. today, joining in the counter-inaugural events taking place today.

I got an email and a text from Caleb during the night telling his friends that he made it there safe. I haven’t yet hit any news sites so I don’t know what has been happening as I write this. I’ll do that as soon as I publish this post.

I save my political opinions (mostly) for GAB, but here I just want to say that I hope Caleb and Gus are effective in voicing their opinion, and also hope that they return home safe.

Freedom isn’t free, you know.
