Dulles Expo Greenberg Train Show (and some bonus material)

img32408
I made a trip to “another” Greenberg train show today, at Dulles Expo, near Dulles Airport, VA, 20 miles from DC in the Virginia Piedmont.

I had to park at Wal-Mart and go in and get a winter hat. There was a Salvation Army Bell Ringer putting on his act. Salvation Army has a past record of anti-gay policies, and the current situation seems uncertain and needs another look soon.

The show was very crowded, but had only three large train layouts.

CNN panel presents its book “Unprecedented” at Politics and Prose; a visit to Comet Ping Pong Pizzeria, after the fake news scandal

img32326
I did visit the Comet Ping Pong Pizzeria today in Washington DC just as it opened.

I also attended a book-signing party at Politics and Prose Bookstore (next door) with a panel from CNN for its book “Unprecedented” headed by Brian Stelter.

My apologies for calling them “Poets …” on Youtube — the right name for the bookstore is Politics and Prose. Some scrambled memory, maybe a senior moment.

There was an introduction by the business owner on the fake news crisis in the neighborhood.

The panel follows.

Here is my video from the Cato Institute forum “Free Speech in the Age of Trump”, at 6 PM EST on Tuesday, December 6, 2016. Kat Murti moderated. Danish publisher Flemming Rose, from the Jyllens Posten cartoon controversy (the book “The Tyranny of Silence”) and Reason magazine editor Nick Gillespie spoke.

Donald Trump! Footage of a protest outside his hotel today in Washington DC

img32052

The protest (of Donald Trump’s election)  was from high school students in DC schools.  Many were white  (probably 50%) and “upscale”.  Some people were there to chant and demonstrate but others were there to film “The Hunger Games 4” with Trump as President Snow.

There were lots of chants like “Not my president”, “No justice no peace.

There is another rally at George Washington University.  It’s likely I’ll recognize people in that crowd from the LGBT community, Town and Cobalt.

The president-elect should realize that some younger adults who have tweeted very explicit language about his election are people whom he would have respected personally and who would have survived “The Boardroom” had they been on the Apprentice.  I doubt that many of his hires from that show approve of all of his behavior.

A drive through “Trump” country in Pennsylvania

dscnf425

I drove yesterday through the countryside NW of Gettysburg, on 394 and 234, and on many named Pennsylvania roads without any route numbers and not on the maps.   There were many roads with no businesses, no signs directing me how to get out of a maze.  I could have passed into the afterlife this way.  I crossed gaps in the “Blue Ridge” three times, finally come out near Catalonia State Park near US 30, east of Chambersburg.

There was a “Gun Shop Road” near one of the ridge tops.  Reminds me of the 2001 movie “Bill’s Gun Shop“.

Everywhere I saw Trump and Pence signs, and no Clinton signs.  People said to me, they weren’t interested in politics, they just wanted to be left alone.
