Recognizing that most folks who read this blog don't live in the DC area and won't be able to plan a visit to the Library of Congress on such short notice (sorry!), I wanted to ever-so-quickly promote this amazing opportunity that the Washington Post has alerted me to: On Monday, February 18th, the Library of Congress is having their spring open house from 10am-3pm! What that means is that visitors will be able to enter (not just look into) the Main Reading Room...AND they can take photographs...AND they get a chance to see rare items, including a handwritten draft of the Emancipation Proclamation AND Lincoln's first inaugural address and the bible on which Lincoln (and Obama) took their oaths of office. Crazy, right?!?!
I am sooooo there.
