Children celebrate the inauguration
Wed Jan 21
Photo: Michael Appleton for The New York Times While millions of people gathered in Washington D.C. to watch Barack Obama be sworn in as our 44th president, kids around the country (and more importantly NYC) celebrated the event in style. Though some parents kept their kids home to watch the historic event, those that did make it to class took part by attending rallies, screenings and yes, even inaugural balls (we're jealous, too).

Little Adolf Hitler removed from home
Tue Jan 20
There are a lot of folks out there who love bizarre baby names (Jason Lee's son Pilot Inspektor, anyone?), but when does creative freedom become child abuse? Three tots with neo-Nazi names were first introduced to the nation back in December when a supermarket bakery refused to write the eldest child's moniker, Adolf Hitler, on his birthday cake. The saga spawned a sequel last week when Adolf and his little sisters, JoyceLynn Aryan Nation and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie (no, we're not kidding), were removed from their parents' home by the New Jersey Division of Youth and Family Services. The reason for their removal is unknown. But let's face it: The authorities got involved because of their names. If the parents didn't actually do anything abusive to their kids (beyond the obvious), do you think the government has the right to take them away?
