It Happened On a Beautiful Spring Day

They may have been panicking in the Capitol, but just a few blocks away on Penn., people are welcoming the interruption. I see a lot of Cap. staffers lying in the grass, some people smoking, others grabbing lunch and coffee. I bumped into an acquaintance and had the following conversation:

“Hi Meg, isn’t this crazy?”


“They’ve evacuated the Capitol.”


“Yes. They spotted an aircraft in the restricted airspace.”

“Oh. wow.”


“Well, back to work, I guess.”

“Yep. See ya.”
