Here I am in DC to fight for the future of physics. It’s interesting to be here on President’s Day (naturally, everybody else had the day off!). I arrived early yesterday, it was a bright and sunny (albeit COLD) day, and my spiffy brand new camera was burning a hole in my backpack. What better to do than take my camera to the Mall? The National Mall, that is. And contemplate the vision that these honored Presidents had for our country. Here they are:
I wandered about, attempting to master the complicated array of buttons on my camera, and I couldn’t help but wonder (i) where the great leaders are now – we are certainly in need of them, and (ii) whether these guys are turning over in their graves. Surely they must be wondering what the heck has happened to the principles they founded this country upon.
And, the new camera works quite well, doesn’t it….
