Washington DC, my home for a year spanning half of 2010 and 2011. "It's sometimes called the City of Magnificent Distances, but it might with greater propriety be termed the City of Magnificent Intentions. -- American Notes, by Charles Dickens.
"America has the potential for the greatest economic boom and spiritual renewal in our history. But we're being held back by Washington politics as usual. It's time we move forward." -- Steve Forbes
