The Sackler Gallery is my favorite Smithsonian museum (well, I like the National Zoo too).

You can stay at the American Inn in Bethesda for $194/night. It's walking distance from the Bethesda metro stop. The doubletree is also very close to the Bethesda metro and should be in the $150/night range (though you may have to book it on their website to get that price).

Marlin-

You can recognize that men and women are different without being a member of the patriarchy.  Anyone who values the privilege of carrying a gun over the right of women to express themselves is clearly one of our Male Oppressors.  Also, you don't like the Cheese Shop, because they use arugala and sprouts instead of lettuce. While not oppressive to women per se, it is certainly indicative of a mind bound by traditions and interested in preserving a status quo. ;)

Eve was framed,

Aerynn

WINNER!

I'm just happy to see that my apparent grouping has the honor of being a proper noun.

I would never really oppress women though - it wouldn't be right, as they're so frail and good at needlework. ;D

sigh, this is why everybody who knows me assumed I'm a Romney supporter.

I see you're an alumnus, so I guess I don't need to tell you that the Cheese Shop isn't all that (where sandwiches are concerned at any rate).

Are you crazy?! Cheese shop is the best thing in Williamsburg.


I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that you're of the fairer sex? In my experience, that's the determining factor in the pro/anti-cheese shop split. It's good for cheese, but I just don't think a place can say it has sandwiches when they don't have lettuce (instead they have arugula or some other green that God intended for rabbits). Lenny's Gourmet is only mediocre, and I'd take a sandwich from there over Cheese Shop six ways from Sunday.

Marlin is clearly an agent of the patriarchy.  >:(

Aw, that's not fair. Just because I recognize that men and women are different? You're gonna make me cry over here  :'(

There is still the Indian restaurant. I don't know anything about any Vietnamese restaurant, but that doesn't mean it isn't there, it's just that I cook usually (the only reason I know there's that Indian restaurant is that's the place who directed me to an Indian grocer where I could get real Basmati).

Fired. But, if he had not only blocked it but also left the Wren Cross as it were (which is a crazy thing to be angry about, since it wouldn't have been there in the 1700's when that chapel pretends to be from), I think he'd not have been fired.

When the chapel *pretends* to be from? You are KILLING ME here!

Place has burned 3 times. Unless you're willing to date the whole building based on burned remnants of exterior walls, it's post 1850 (1862?)

Oh, and I aim to please, baby. *takes lollipop out of pocket*

(ok...that reference could be miscontrued as dirty by most younger people, so to avoid that, I'll clarify: see Telly Savalas)

I've decided to take friday off for a trip to the burg.  I may go see my undergrad advisor (and thank him for writing one of my recommendations) and will probably wander around the law school some.  It's too late to arrange for a tour, but will there be any restrictions to wandering around?  Any tips or things I should definitely look for?

I don't know what the protocol would be on sitting in on a class without being officially given a tour, but that the only restriction that I can imagine. That said, I don't really know what there is to look at, but then I'm the type who doesn't visit schools before going to them. I see you're an alumnus, so I guess I don't need to tell you that the Cheese Shop isn't all that (where sandwiches are concerned at any rate). I don't think there are any empty seats in my contracts class, or I'd offer to pretend to be giving you a tour. At any rate, my prof is an acquired taste (though once acquired, I find I quite like him), so you probably wouldn't want to sit in on his class anyways.

I give up.  I have a thousand writing deadlines this week and can't rebut adequately.  You will have to pick a new fight over spring break.  :P

Actually doing your work? Bah, humbug!

I actually don't think we have a fight here though. I'm not saying the BoV can't strip us of our second amendment right. This all started because I just find it interesting how eager we are to give up our 2nd amendment right. I think our only point of disagreement is I think the BoV/Nichol could have done whatever he danged well pleased with regard to the SWAS.

Done what he pleased = Without a big ole fight about it?  I disagree.  I think he was damned if he banned it and damned because he didn't.

There'd be a big ol' (or is that olde since this is Williamsburg?) fight for sure, but I don't think he'd find himself being scolded by Scalia.

I agree.  Fired or not fired, though? (if he blocked it)
