Rally To Restore Sanity on 10-30-10

We just got back from Washington DC. We attended Jon Stewart's Rally To Restore Sanity, along with 200,000 other people from around America. We tried to squeeze a lot of sightseeting into one day, so the pictures above show some of what we did. We saw The White House, The Washington Monument, The Lincoln Memorial, The Capitol, Ben's Chili Bowl (where the president took the Russian President for lunch...and we ate the world's largest, heart-attack inducing breakfast), and everything in the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum (including the Apollo 11 Columbia Command Module and the Spirit of St. Louis).

The most surreal thing, however, was the "duet" on stage. Cat Stevens (now known as Yusef Islam) sang "Peace Train" while Ozzy Osbourne sang "Crazy Train". The duet/debate was settled by the O Jays singing "Love Train". Amazing!
