  1. Nice blog that you have, I would like to tell you about my trip that I went to washington DC with my parents, If that is ok, with you,

    When we arrived to the capital,One of the night I snuck off on my bike to take my photos of the city.To say I was scared is an understatement. I knew that my nice Nikon digital

    camera clearly marked me as a tourist, and one with money besides. Taking Washington DC photos of bums camped under bridges, or of rundown slums was a risky

    proposition at best. Nonetheless, I persevered. I guess I was just lucky. No one even hassled me. When I got back, I had some Washington DC photos to show my civics

    class that shook them to the core. It says a lot about our nation that its capital is so run down and so impoverished. If we can’t even take care of the people in our capital,

    who can we take care of? What do you think of the capital ?

    Warmly

    I used to live in the area and I’m familiar with the poverty there. Howard Stern — who got his start at WWDC in the early 80s — used to make fun of the bums and impoverished in the nation’s capital and “P.G. County” back in the day.

    Slight correction needed: Bike to Work Day 2008 is on Friday May 16, not May 18. Come out and have a free bagel and coffee, music, and save gas.
