The National Mall in DC is Now my Writing Desk

For those of you who don’t already know, I live a short jaunt from the National Mall.

And, when I say “a short jaunt” I mean that, if I had a straight line of site from my balcony to Independence Avenue, with my US Navy Expert Marksman ribbon I would stand a good chance (with a rifle) of hitting a man-sized target skirting the rear of the Air and Space Museum.

Okay, maybe that’s a rather violent illustration, but I think I’ve made my point.

So, imagine my excitement at the news that the entire National Mall is now wired for the Internet!  Granted, it is a bit ironic since I just signed up for 3G service on my new laptop with Verizon last weekend, but let’s not look a gift horse (or gift Wi-Fi) in the mouth.

Expect some blog entries from the shadow of the Smithsonian (or, God help my waistline, the Mitsitam Cafe at the Museum of the American Indian) in the near future!
