A Capital Sight
The majesty of the Capitol and the monuments still thrill me, particularly when I can share the sight with visitors from out of town. And while the grass on the Mall can look a bit ratty, perhaps not sufficiently dressed to suit the Capitol's grandeur, the nice thing is that they actually let you sit on that grass. It's the people's grass after all and you can bring a picnic or your frisbee and no one will chase you away.
If you're feeling fed up with the gridlock that's marked congressional politics of late, I understand. Thankfully, somehow the squabbling within never diminishes the grandeur of the building itself.
