A Day In DC

It was gorgeous today. A little warm in the sun, but there's always a little shade somewhere.

I was in DC today to work. I had to go to the Newseum and check a floor for flatness. It's a complicated procedure, but the floor passed.

Now, you're probably asking yourself "What the hell is a "Newseum"?
Well, its a museum of news...and its gonna be so cool when it's finished.

Its an interactive museum of the art and science of news gathering and reporting.
Kids will be able to actually sit down at a desk and be a news anchor..or go on location and report...and then watch themselves on tape..(well, digital video) There will be displays of all the news stories through the years which have altered the course of history. Very neat stuff.

But believe it or not, that was not the high point of my day, no sirree...

Today, I met not one BUT TWO major players in our movement.

Pete Hegseth from Vets for Freedom and Chris Hill from Gathering of Eagles.

I met Chris and my good friend Kristinn at the NPS HQ to discuss the upcoming rally on 15 September. The meeting went well, and it seems we got what we wanted.
After the meeting at NPS, Kristinn asked if I time to give them a ride to Arlington.
I said of course I do and we piled into the truck and headed over the river, to the brand new studios of...ready for this???


...thats right, friends and neighbors, I spent a half hour in the studio with G. Gordon Liddy while he did his radio show...and interviewed Pete, Chris, and Kristinn.

It went really well. Afterwards, Chris and I were outside talking about the interview and Chris made the statement, "I have to admit to a bit of "school-girl' (his word, not mine) giddiness, being in the same room with G. Gordon."

I looked at him and said, "I'm really glad YOU were the one who brought that up, cause I know exactly what you mean, but I wasn't going to say anything."

The man is history walking.

I have to give a shout-out to Franklin, G.Gordon's producer..really great individual, and a vet. Canadian Army, BlackGuard. I would have loved to spend the rest of the morning there, but I had other obligations..

I will be back though.
