Monday at the Museum

For the MLK holiday, I hopped on the MARC and the Metro with a friend* and headed down to the National Gallery of Art to look at Trompe l’Oiel paintings and works by Vuillard, Vermeer, and Ingres. Then we went to other Smithsonians to look at spaceships, skeletons, and bugs.

There was also a Bible Bus (that’s a school bus decked out with bible verses) going around the Mall, with a loudspeaker on top telling “evil warmongers” President Bush and Billy Graham to repent of their sins and stop killing unborn babies before God “burns America like he did Sodom and Gomorrah.”

(Oh, and the coffee at the Museum of Natural History takes about as long to prepare as it took the dinosaurs to evolve.)
