It all started when we decided to go see our daughter – who lives in New York City – for her spring break. We got to thinking we would go to Washington D.C. to visit our nephew and my best friend from my high school days in Herndon Virginia. And because I can’t really go anywhere without a book in mind – I picked up Advise and Consent.  The way I see it – Allen Drury laid out two paths to pursue.  I mean – he probably wasn’t thinking about that – but I am. You can follow the lawmakers or you can follow the tourists. I followed both and came up with an excellent tour of our nation’s capital.
