Art Buchwald, the Washington Post humorist, was doing a book-signing locally so I trudged up to the Dupont Circle area to see him. He's certainly an interesting looking person and he radiates warmth and cheer. While I was there, he pointed over to a shelf with best sellers and said "Death and decay....

On September 11, I was on leave from work, writing a long description of my just-completed three-week trip to New England.

Why they hold events in the Commerce lobby is beyond me. The acoustics are horrible, in large part because of the metal ceiling which reflects everything, and if you move outside of a very small radius, the background noise drowns out everything.
