DC Blogging

I had forgotten how beautiful DC is in the spring.


If you look carefully at the high-res image, you can see there's an "event" taking place on the West lawn. There is a huge PA set-up and a couple of thousand chairs. There are more people on the stage than in the audience.

I felt kind of sorry for the folks on the stage. They were ranting about something - the details were not exactly clear but they seemed to be decidedly pro-god (who isn't?). But I am sure they put a lot of work into setting this up and it was a really bit event for them -- all to preach to the empty chairs and confused tourists.

You are half right. It is the West Lawn of the US Capitol. Perhaps you are confused, thinking of the South Lawn of the White House, where the preznint frequently hold functions?

The West Lawn (of the Capitol) is commonly used for public gatherings and rallies.
