Going to D.C.
Blogging will be pretty light over the next five days. Me and my family are flying to Washington, D.C. for my grandmother's burial, followed by a few days of sightseeing.
The kids are pretty young, so while we'll make a visit to the Capitol Mall I probably won't be able to satisfy my inner political geek and watch a Congressional session. Mostly we'll be visiting things like the National Zoo, Colonial Williamsburg and (if my wife is feeling generous) a Civil War battlefield or two.
We're getting back Wednesday, so look for posting to resume Thursday.
Meanwhile, feel free to treat this post as an open thread if you've got something you want to discuss.
Update: Bumped this to the top of the blog so it wouldn't get lost.
