News of local interest


Just saw this today:

Did you know that, once upon a time, there was an official U.S. Presidential yacht? The USS Sequoia is now a National Historic Landmark, and a judge says it’s deteriorating and inhabited by raccoons. Wow—another neat metaphor.

It’s of local interest because it is actually docked a few blocks from my apartment in Washington.

And because it’s not the only thing in Washington inhabited by raccoons. (If you count a certain hairpiece on the president elect.)
