Today's Poor Almanack


Thanks for this must go to faithful correspondent Here Today Gone Tomorrow, who requested a cartoon about the miles of temporary fencing along the George Washington Parkway. The GW Parkway runs along the Potomac on the Virginia side. It's a wonderfully scenic drive, running from the Beltway to Mount Vernon, and every Fourth of July its length that affords a good view of DC is jam-packed with fireworks watchers. To keep the fireworks watchers from blundering onto the busy Parkway the Park Service puts up temporary fences.
I was tickled to see a large photo on the front of today's Metro section of a stiltwalking neighborhood parade Uncle Sam. Just hope he didn't get stuck up there.

Amen about the fireworks--there's nothing like gritting my teeth, waiting for the next door neighbors' 10:38 roman candle to waken my sleeping child. Argh!

My reaction to those random pops long after the 4th has evolved from "Ooo, firecrackers are illegal in the city!" to "They still have fireworks? Wow, their self-control is amazing!"

I think someone in our neighborhood gave up on firecrackers and was using dynamite.

Now all I can think about is potato salad. Yummy!!
