life in and around NYC is insane

hello, washington, DC

When you read this post, Becca and I will be on a plane headed to the District of Columbia.

Becca will be spending the next 6 days at a National Young Leaders Conference sponsored by the Congressional Youth Leaders Council. I am flying to Washington with her (she was nervous about flying alone and having to find the program advisers in the airport), but she'll fly home alone -- I'm coming back to NYC later this evening.

The Congressional Youth Leadership Council (CYLC) offers educational leadership
conferences for an elite group of outstanding young people from across the
country and around the world, whose nomination provides them with unmatched
enrichment opportunities in a distinguished academic environment.

She's really looking forward to the program. She's going participate in political discussion and simulations of the political process, and she's going to take tours of a few of the sites of our nation's capital. Maybe she'll even get a chance to meet some political muck-a-mucks.

Becca is seriously considering a major in political science, and this trip is going to be wonderful for her.
