captiolHere we go again, not so much around the world as exploring a nearby neighbourhood.   This last week found junior and a colleague in suburban DC, holding down the fort (and at times a bar stool) at the Westfields Marriott.  Mostly painful meetings, however not without opportunity to explore DC a little.  The last time I was in this part of the world was a lifetime ago as a high school student burdened with the ‘too cool’ ennui that likely prevented me from enjoying the experience. 

Cool visitor tip – The Canadian embassy occupies a prime location on Pennsylvania Avenue (accessed by vehicle from C street) and they allowed us to park our rental car on site while we wandered around the mall for several hours – your tax dollars at work!

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron'scruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. C.S. Lewis
