This Is What A City Should Look Like

Or so says Kaid Benfield…

But I rather agree, but I am also biased.

Definitely read the piece, though. The picture at the top is of the George Mason monument. You are unlikely to find it unless you happened to take the long route around from the Rev. Dr. King memorial to the Jefferson memorial. If I recall, those two books by Mason’s side say “Locke” and “Rousseau.”

The Franciscan monastery pictured has some gorgeous gardens and is one of the best places to sit, stroll, and relax, regardless of one’s sectarian stance. And the monks, being mostly older brothers, retired from having watched over sites in the Holy Land, are pretty laid back (having gone to confession there several times, I appreciate the presence of laid back monks when listing my faults).
