    The first group of photos on this page were taken on December 11, 2000, in the vicinity of the U.S. Supreme Court as it heard arguments in the case of Bush v. Gore, concerning whether the Florida Supreme Court had overstepped its bounds in ordering manual recounts of votes cast in that state in the November 7 presidential election.  The second group of photos were taken on Inauguration Day, January 20, 2001, when George W. Bush was inaugurated as the 43rd president of the United States.  Owing to the closeness of the election and uncertainties in the vote count, some people protested in Washington, DC.
