Report From Washington

We spent several hours at the Newseum, the high tech temple of all things information. It was fascinating. One current exhibition is called G-Men and Journalists, about the FBI's attempts to control or manipulate the news media. In the lobby of the museum we found this chilling, life-size image of long-time FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover (supplied by Madame Tussaud's), a dark name in American history. The FBI headquarters is just down the street. They sure remember him.

But, having daydreamed about leaving a career as a lawyer for one in photography, it occurred to me to veer off in yet another direction and become a television news reporter. See below.

We're taking the train to New York this afternoon. Who knows what adventures await.
