The Influence of the Washington Post

It was a beautiful weekend, just right for a long walk or hike.  The ‘weekend’ section of the Post had, as its cover article, a description of a 9 mile “urban hike”, which it conveniently divided into 5 separate and distinct sections, suggesting that one following this route would see interesting parts of the city that the tourist, and perhaps the resident, would not normally see.  The last segment, between Rock Creek Park and Ft. Reno Park, would bring the walkers right by the front of our house.

What to do?  Stand outside with bottles of water?  Have a yard sale?  Put together a lemonade stand?

Luckily, we did none of the above.  I don’t think that anyone walked by our house all weekend (except for the regulars).
