PROTESTERS SHOW UP AT BALL IN PRECURSOR OF INAUGURAL OPPOSITION


WASHINGTON (AP) -- Activists say thousands of protesters will greet President Bush's inaugural parade today, even claiming their own piece of prime viewing real estate complete with bleachers.
And as Bush supporters warmed-up for a day of celebration with pre-inaugural parties last night, so to did the demonstrators.

At the Black Tie and Boots Ball, a Texas-based event, protesters braved the cold last night and heckled guests as they arrived for the party. One held a sign "Make War, Not Jobs." Others shouted "People are dying, enjoy your champagne."

Thousands of protesters in other cities across the U-S plan demonstrations and rallies against the returning administration.

Large protests are expected in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Seattle. And rallies are also planned in dozens of smaller communities.
