history, reopened

I have been happy that both daughters live in places that are full of history. The kind that belongs to the past and the kind that is very current.


Late this afternoon, we stood in line to enter the newly reopened Smithsonian Museum of American History.

We walked through the American Communities and the American Wars exhibits. There was a lot of history to take in before they threw us out (past closing time). Not all of the presentation was, in fact, uncontroversial.

Ah well. History is tough to take on an empty stomach. We quickly remedied this by eating a wonderful fried chicken dinner at Central.
