As our first elected president, George Washington was conscious that he was setting precedent for this new position as head of a republic. He had already resigned his command of the Continental Army a few years earlier, despite calls for him to keep his wartime powers and rule the nation as a dictator or king. Yet he and his supporters also saw how his vast prestige could help support a fragile new government. So instead of simply administering the oath of office, the only constitutionally-mandated element of an inauguration, they turned Washington's ascension to the presidency into a show one that helped publicly reconcile the compound, if not contradictory, roles bestowed on America's top post. The result blended the trappings of European monarchs they thought would give the office legitimacy with heavy nods to the presidency's democratic foundations. In many ways, the inauguration looked like a coronation. Washington's swearing in was turned into spectacle, complete with throngs of adoring lookers-on, invocations of the divine and a gun salute. But the new president also took care to keep the ceremony from looking too much like a crowning. Washington wore a plain brown suit to the affair, which was held at Federal Hall in the then-capitol of New York. He used his inaugural address (likely written with the help of James Madison) to praise the republican model of government, and to show humility at the task "to which," he said, "the voice of my country called me." And, of course, he drew attention to the president's solemn pledge to "preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States." Washington also set another powerful precedent eight years later: After two elected terms, he retired.

People in Westport are up in arms over late-night landline calls intended for the UK-based station. The mix-up is a result of Irish viewers calling the show's premium-rate numbers, which start with 098, without adding the international dialling code. Regional Development Minister Michael Ring said his constituents were "aggravated and annoyed". Mr Ring told the Sunday Independent: "They are getting these calls in the middle of night. "One of those people has an elderly mother and family members all over the world and there could be a call at any time that they would have to take." 'Everything they could' He said people in the town should not have to change their phone number because of the blunder. The Fine Gael politician has referred the matter to a number of authorities, including the police, the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland and ComReg, the Republic of Ireland's communications sector regulator. The minister told the paper the police "did everything they could" but they had limited powers. He has also contacted the Phone-paid Services Authority (PSA), the UK regulator for goods and services charged to a phone bill, such as directory enquiries and votes to TV talent shows. A PSA spokesman said it was looking into the problem.
