Watched the inauguration with about a dozen other Americans at a friend's apartment. I thought the inaugural speech was good, but I was surprised by a glaring error in the third sentence. "Forty-four Americans have now taken the presidential oath," the new president said. Actually, only 43 Americans have taken the oath (though there have been 44 presidents since you-know-who gets counted twice).
