DC FOLLIES: I'm back from

DC FOLLIES: I'm back from a weekend in Washington, DC, where I had a wonderful time as always. There's nothing quite like driving and walking around a completely deserted downtown Washington at 3:00 in the morning on a Saturday; I pulled a blade of grass from the lawn of the White House, which is presently taped to my computer at work.
Also had some fun adventures in the Georgetown and Dupont Circle areas and at a place in Maryland called The Silver Diner (no relation), and enjoyed lunch at a Georgetown eatery called Billy Martin's- which is named after a baseball player, but not the ex-Yankee manager of the '70s and '80s.
One other lingering issue that arose from the trip: one of our dinner companions mentioned that a friend of his was upset about recently having been laid off from a major environmental organization. Which raises the question: if one gets downsized from an environmental or otherwise left-leaning organization, does that count as getting screwed by The Man?
