Side By Side

I guess I’m surprised that they sell political t-shirts at Reagan National Airport — but they do.  There, side by side, you will find Hillary and Trump shirts and other paraphernalia.  So, if you haven’t already gotten your political fix just by being in D.C., you can buy a t-shirt on your way home to publicly proclaim your loyalty.

The cashier reports that the Hillary t-shirts are outselling the Trump t-shirts by a considerable margin.  

Minding Abe’s Sign

I stopped at the Lincoln Memorial,  my favorite national monument, on my visit to the National Mall early this morning.  It never fails to inspire me, and I stop there whenever I can for a few minutes of silent, awed contemplation of our greatest President.

This morning I was struck by the message on the sign placed near the Lincoln statue.  It’s probably unnecessary — I’ve never heard anything but hushed whispers in my prior visits — but I appreciated it nevertheless. 

Don’t you wish people took heed of the sign as they talked about, say, the 2016 presidential campaign?
