If you’re a liberal minded DC resident like I am (whatever that means), things can’t get much better than they are today. After billions of dollars were spent around the country to create annoying ad campaigns, our citizens have spoken, and voilÃ ! It’s out with the Republicans. Bush even threw his new enemies an olive branch by kicking Rumsfeld out. What’s next, DC statehood with representation for our taxation? The tide has changed my friends, and the outlook is good.
While I’m talking about reasons to be happy, let’s talk about how beautiful the Fall colors are right now. Summer has warm weather but I sure don’t miss those 95 degree, 100% humidity days. Spring brings the city back to life and gives the cherry blossoms a reason to pop (and gives us a reason to drink on a roof deck). Winter just plain sucks. But Fall gives us Halloween, reasons to wear our favorite sweaters, and as my friend says, Fall is “boot season”. But don’t forget about how amazing the landscape looks as Eye Captain shows us so well. Who would have guessed that Rock Creek could look so good? The colors are dripping in his photo and the water is as smooth as glass. It makes me want to take a deep breath and yell, “Only two more years of Bush!”
