IS the tattle-tale the new American patriot?
This Thanksgiving weekend, we hosted family members. One afternoon — having explored fully our own hamlet — a spirit of wanderlust seized them.
Washington, D.C., some 25 miles distant, was the destination selected.
We stepped into our waders, plugged our nostrils… and trekked into the foul, treacherous swamp.
Our travels concluded in upscale Georgetown and the splendid settings of its eponymous university… where we lolled among the “dreaming spires” of academia.
