It is a nice little shack but honestly it is no Monticello.

The crabby little old ladies that run the place leave something to be desired, though.

My non-experience at Mt Vernon was only in the smallest part caused by them, however. While I was in DC nearly 2 years ago (wife attending a conference), early afternoon I decided to make a public transit run out there. The metro to the appropriate terminal to catch a bus wasn't bad, but the bus was late and time was dwindling. So I gambled and took the non-direct bus. Mistake.

I did learn that Alexandria has a high population of minority workers, especially hispanic apparently, and I did get a nice tour of the many apartment complexes where they reside. It is, nevertheless, a worthwhile experience to be the only caucasian person aboard a bus, as it must in many regards resemble daily life for minorities among the caucasian population, and is a good reminder to be humble.

In the end, after arriving 20 minuted before closing time, I decided not to spend the 15 bucks. Hell, it would take 10 minutes to get to the house form the gates. My decision was aided by the LOL (not referring to laughter here) who spent 10 of that 20 minutes leaving to find out whether a ticket bought today could be used tomorrow.

But the Mt. Vernon gift shop and cafeteria were very nice.

If our erstwhile foes on the "next soccer question" thread can use 1 sentence posts, then so can I. Evil Overlords know when they need to adjust their ethical standards.

Why do these people continue to post? How many soccer questions could there be? I figured the answer to the first one was Pele and then I'm lost.

I posted "Pele" to the first question and was roundly abused. That is one small part of the reason I was driven to Evil.

You have every right to feel that way Mr. Washington. Damn soccer fans.

I mean seriously, if the answer isn't Pele, offsides, Beckham, Brandy Chastain, drunken brawls, or Manchester United, then the "next soccer question" isn't worth asking.

Not that Evil Overlords need approbation.

Evil Overlord Affirmation: I am smart enough, I am evil enough, and darn it, people hate me.

A guy gets a busted nose playing soccer and all of a sudden he's gotta post a million times...

You want a rough and tumble sport, try overthrowing the world power structure as we know it. I strained a quad muscle doing that once.
