Its Over.

No. 1,567

My Bucket List Starts in Philadelphia!

No. 1,312 I just learned about the Museum of the American Revolution, opening April 19 in Philadelphia and I want to go there as soon as possible.  I still haven’t made it to the National Constitution Center and the Franklin — I need to go there too.  

Those Pesky Ideas Whose Time Has Come.

The Supreme Court is hearing arguments on same sex marriage, legal arguments that wouldn’t have been given a long shot chance of acceptance not very long ago.
