Our visit to D.C. this summer left me discouraged. Crime, the poor success of public education in our country’s capital is well documented. Interestingly, all the vendor shops around our country’s grand monuments and public buildings sell exactly the same merchandise. We bought 4 t-shirts. They were all made in Honduras. The food vendors sell exactly the same “American” fare. Plan to be searched before entering all buildings. Kind-a-didn’t-feel like America. Ya, know what I mean?

D.C. to have it’s own house member makes me wonder what sort of grand ideas they will contribute to running the rest of the country.
