Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
They drive like maniacs.  Everyone is Washington drives like a lunatic -- my aunt more than all the rest (which is frightening since she drives one of those tiny Mazda sports cars that crumble like paper in an accident).

I was once walking down Pennsylvania Avenue in Foggy Bottom (George Washington U. area) on my way to see some of the "touristy" stuff when Bush's motorcade drove by at about 150 mph.  About five minutes before it passed me, I could hear the police sirens all the way from Rosslyn, and officers started clearing -- pushing really -- pedestrians from the sidewalks.

Maybe it's a Texas thing.  Texans are, I'm convinced, an entirely different species.  These are people who wear jeans and wool plaid shirts when it's a hundred and twenty degrees outside.  We really should've let it remain an independent country.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
