Well, my Fannish Credentials are saved -- I have visited the Smithsonian Air and Space museum, and been subjected to all the Bad Science non-technical approximations contained therein. It was interesting -- I think it needed more of my time than I was able to give it. I went to a couple of other places worth visiting too. I went shopping in assorted places, and wandered around looking at the city. A day is not enough. But I didn't come to America to be a tourist in Washington DC, so it'll have to do. Back to the core purpose of the trip tomorrow.
