No real news to report for the day, not really anything political on my mind either...unless you all want to know that the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C. was evacuated today. A suspicious package was found in the basement. I don't even know that because it is located blocks from the capitol, I actually know that because Crosby, Stills, and Nash were in town for a concert and were evacuated.
Pointless and irrelevent, yes, but I thought that was ironic since "Southern Cross" has been stuck in my head for days now.
Anyway, I'm going out of town in the morning. I'll most likely be back late Tuesday, but don't expect a post out of me until at least Wednesday. That is of course if nothing all together earth shattering happens between now and then. The Iraqi Constitution deadline is tomorrow, I'm not holding my breath on it, Senator Joe Biden (D-Delaware) is calling for the resignation of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, and there is a new plan for a Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial on the Washington Mall, but all of those things can wait.
Someone once said that a trip is what you take when you can't take anymore of what you've been taking. This wasn't even a planned trip and maybe I'm running from chaos or toward it, but nonetheless, I'm taking a day or two off.
