Now here's a great use for those criticized TV screens all around LA LIve's Nokia Plaza. Councilwoman Jan Perry invites all to come "celebrate history" at "L.A.'s Biggest Inaugural Viewing Party." It's next Tuesday morning with events beginning at 7 a.m. Barack will take office around 9 a.m. with post ceremony coverage, entertainment, and the parade to follow. Also: We've heard that at least one private school has deemed the day a holiday so kids can watch the inauguration with their parents. Is your work or school giving you the day off?
