Outside the Supreme Court, later, we saw the demonstration about President Obama's health care reform. It was a really small demonstration and made me wonder about how it is portrayed in the
news. It was literally one sidewalk of people and many of the people present were pro-Obama, coming out to interact with the demonstrators. It hardly represented a big reaction, more like a mini upset. I hope the Supreme Court Judges decide in favor of the President.
The Library of Congress was next, a truly beautiful building with engaging displays of ancient texts, maps and artifacts. Then we walked through a residential area to Union Station where we had dinner at a restaurant, in which the waiters begin their service by reciting the history of the restaurant, pointing out items of interest, such as the Presidential Seals on the wall - I think we are truly full today.
Tomorrow we are attending Senator Diane Fienstein's breakfast and then probably going to some museums, including the Native American Museum which we are told has excellent food in their restuarlant.
I bought two books today, the Constitution of the United States in a handy little publication and Semantic Antics by Sol Steinmetz, both from the bookstore sale at the Library of Congress.
