Situational Analysis – March 4, 2021

It’s Thursday, March 4th and the day some Trump supporters believe Trump will be sworn in as President. (He won’t, but that doesn’t stop them from making credible threats of a Capitol attack.) Why today? Because March 4th was traditionally the day presidents were inaugurated, beginning with George Washington and ending with FDR’s first inauguration. In 1933, Congress changed the date to January 20.

On this next-to-the-last day of the Utah legislature, elected officials will again spend all day on the floor debating bills. Unless they go saunter in this afternoon’s sunshine – or enjoy some pound cake on National Pound Cake Day. Or both. Follow along at
