THE WASHINGTON MONUMENT POST EARTHQUAKE

Washington Monument still stands tall behind a fellow pedicaber The Washington Monument After our Earth Quake August 23, 2011 Today, during the earthquake, a couple who I spoke with were at the top of the Washington Monument! “We thought we were under attack! Thank the lord we weren’t in the elevator!

OH dear! Dave Megerle (a man that I haven’t yet had the pleasure of meeting)-is moving around in a suavey-spider-eque manner from the top of the Washington Monument—all the way down. He is doing this because he is checking the granite stones (36,801 to be exact), what is in place, what has been damaged, what is shaky, and which stones have had the caulking between the stones damaged in greater depth.

MARTIN LUTHER KING DEDICATION TODAY

At the memorial, King is emerging from a section of a mountain, carved out of stone.  Observers don’t even reach his knee when standing next to him.  His face is unyielding.  His arms crossed. He looks kind of chinese. The sculpture is chinese, so I would guess that has something to do with it.  His gaze stares in the direction, across the water, to the unmistakable dome of my hommie Jefferson, the 3rd president, 2nd vice president, and 1st... Read More
