e - a suggestion. If you take the kids to Arlington, go in the late afternoon and take them back of Lee's house close to sunset and sit on the porch. National Park Service will be driving up on a jeep and will likely ask some child if they want to help take down the flag. It's a very cool photo moment if you can wangle it, looking over the Potomac and all.

Oh my gosh - we're going to do that. I can't wait. They'd better not pick some other kid.

Wow, cool! Let's see, other tips: Smithsonian Museum of American History. Really very good, I think, not sugar-coaty. Had and I think still have an exhibit on Japanese internments, and/but/or also many others. Air and Space really is cool, I think. I'll try to think of other things....

The Arboretum is nice although likely to be steamy this weekend. If you go to Arlington, go late in the afternoon, and put yourself and your kids on the back porch of the Lee House, overlooking the Potomac, before sunset. At dusk there will be a jeep coming up with staff to bring down the flag at Arlington, and they usually ask a child (or an adult if no child is available) to help bring down and fold the flag. It's a GREAT photo op, but you have to be there.

Sorry e, I didn't realize my first comment took, my computer froze up at that point and I had to reboot, and I didn't see my first post when I scanned before commenting again. ;)

Have fun!

Compassionate Conservatism in Action

  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."


  • "True religion will not let us fall asleep in the comfort of our freedom. Love thy neighbor is not a piece of advice, it's a command. ...

    God, my friends, is with the poor and God is with us, if we are with them. This is not a burden, this is an adventure."

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.
