What would a national celebration be without a little bit of quaking in fear? 

Fox News is ringing in the new president with a report of a security threat. Just now, the news network reported on a bulletin sent around last night by Homeland Security and the FBI, which warned of a plan by east African Islamic radicals to "disrupt the inauguration." Not to worry though -- the report was of "limited credibility" and little specificity, says Fox.
