The Big Idea

The best thing and worst thing about Americans is that they don't remember history.  Either we don't know that something happened in the past, or, if we do, we understand primarily through the lens of the present.  We end up a people remarkably free of grudges, but surprisingly naive about why the world is the way it is today.

If this blog addresses that problem, it is purely by accident.  Instead, it is dedicated to looking into Washington, DC and its environs and spotting the rich history that surrounds us, unnoticed, every day.
