I got some footage of the Marine Corps Marathon Sunday, right after noon. Marines would not allow the non-runners to get closer than about 1000 feet from the finish line near the Iwo Jima Memorial.
Clip 2: It’s true, that the night before 9/11, I awoke at 1:30 AM (Minneapolis, CDT) from a dream where Washington had endured a nuclear detonation near Iwo Jima and the Arlington Towers, and where a mushroom cloud was darkening the area.

Last night, I paid a quick visit to a Halloween party at the Lodge, located on US 40, East of Boonsboro MD, about 2 miles E of the Intersection with Rt 66 coming down from I-70 and the big Sheetz store (one of the largest anywhere). It’s maybe 10 miles from downtown Hagerstown.
The outdoor patio had a light-on-vegetation show that duplicated the colors you would see in foliage on alien planets that are tidally locked. Some scientists think that photosynthesis does happen on other planets, but most plants would have colors of lower wavelength than green on Earth.
I also stopped at Harper’s Ferry, too late in the day for the bus, able to get some lingering fall colors

Locals tell me that the water (July 30) came to about a foot above the antiques’s shop on the corner across the street from the station and museum — about 6 feet in the street. The Tiber River runs underneath the city.
On Thursday, October 6, 2016, DC Center Global (Washington DC) held its 4th Annual Reception. This group provides for needs of LGBTQ asylu,m seekers (which I have discussed more on the “News Commentary” blog, esp. July 21). There are more details on a legacy blog here, but I took several clips
At Northern VA LGBTQ Pride at Bull Run Park near Manassas VA today, a woman described harassment by a man as she and her partner walked in public recently. It sounds disturbing, but is this supposed to be comedy club.
