Actually, it's a pretty good time to be around DC.  Congress will be 
working toward recess so they can go and campaign and most political 
action, both Presidential and Congressional, will out around the country 
and not here.  Do come!

The original (1976) Air and Space Museum, indeed, is a great place to 
visit.  Added to that is the new Annex next to IAD - about 700,000 ft**2 of 
real stuff (the Smithsonian doesn't take models) including the original 
shuttle, Enterprise, an SR-71 flown in from San Francisco (in 61 minutes!), 
the first Concorde, the Enola Gay, and so much more which was kept in 
storage.  Well worth the visit.

>Hope you folks have fun.

Come join in and be part of it.  Remember, this is YOUR nation's 
capital.  Easy to get here.  All 22 Smithsonian museums are free (no cost 
to get to knowledge) as are many other attractions.  Come and ENJOY!!
