These shots, arriving here Memorial Day weekend, were taken by our friend the Wall Street attorney while he was at some meetings in Washington, DC early in March this year – but they do seem appropriate now.


Setting the scene?  Protestors at the White House – and yes, the sign on the right reads "Ban All Nuclear Weapons or Have a Nice Doomsday."  You can still say what you want.

White House protestors...

Here’s the crew that tells us who said what – the White House press folks setting up.

George Marshall there… And our friend’s comment?  "General George Marshall was partially correct, wasn't he?"

Our friend’s father was a bombardier in a B-24 in Europe in that war.  He told me while I saw Avignon from the ground a few years ago, in the war he saw it through a Norton bombsight.  I got the better deal.  This is for him.

For Phil - a good man

Remember George Washington?
