That's a lot of Congressmen

Well, how would you react if you were called to testify before the combined membership of the House Financial Services and Agriculture Committees - more than 100 members of Congress in all, or about one-quarter of the full House of Representatives.

What a great city, again

As we approach DC's big July 4 tourist weekend, I must say - it's no wonder so many people come here all year. I was just photographing at the Museum of Natural History, and it's a great deal: Walk in anytime, see everything from a T Rex skeleton to live bugs to the Hope Diamond, all just a few rooms apart. If that's not of interest you can go across the street and see the Declaration of Independence, with John Hancock's actual signature, or cross the Mall and check out a lunar lander. And it's all free.

A relative once emailed and asked if I really thought Washington was an appropriate place to raise kids. The answer: It's one of the best. And it's a pretty decent place to be an adult, too.
