Diversify your portfolio!

F Minus is a smart investment, according to this article by Joanne Kaufman today in the Wall Street Journal.
Janet Grimley, an assistant managing editor at the Seattle Post-Intelligencer tells her colleagues:
"Diversify. You need to have some risky comics," for instance the slightly subversive observational strip "F Minus"

I think I left a nearly full sketchbook of F Minus ideas in DC somewhere. Possibly in a corner bakery... or maybe at the airport. And a green Sharpie too. Bummer.

Okay, I kind of left you all hanging because I got tired of paying for internet every day. The rest of the trip went great though. The Lincoln memorial was really impressive. And we got to hear a speech by Colin Powell at the Vietnam Memorial because it was Veteran's day. We checked out the Bill of Rights, the Declaration of Independence, and the Constitution at the National Archives. I got yelled at for touching the glass.
Another cool place is the
International Spy Museum. They had some pretty fun stuff, but I went late in the day and they rushed me through. We really wanted some good seafood, but the place recommended in the guidebook doesn't exist anymore. The food at the next place we tried was good, but expensive and had very small portions. It's not good when at the end of your meal, you're more hungry than when you went in. We had to go for pizza afterwards. I should always start with pizza. Thanks to everyone that sent travel tips. I wish I could have seen everything, but you can only do so much in three days. As fun as it was, I'm glad to be home.
Watch for Thanksgiving comics this week. Remember you can email comics you like to your friends and enemies at www.comics.com.

After a disappointing breakfast at Jimmy T's, had a nice walk up and down the East side of the National Mall today. So this is what fall looks like. Now that I think about it, I don't think I've ever experienced real fall weather. In Arizona we get two months of cold and ten months of extreme heat.
Checked out the Capitol Building and visited the Air and Space Museum, which was great. Favorite exhibits: The lunar command module from Apollo 11 and two nuclear missiles. They also had a selection from the temporarily closed down Museum of American History. I saw some pretty cool stuff there, like Albert Einstein's pipe and the puffy shirt from Seinfeld.
Next we checked out the Museum of Natural History, which had some great stuff, but was way overcrowded. Plus, the security guy was rude.
Walked by Ford's Theater, where Lincoln was shot, and toured the house across the street where he died the next morning. Kinda creepy.
Gonna try to find some good seafood tonight.

After the most uncomfortable plane trip of all time (thank you, Delta), we finally arrive in DC. I'm on no sleep and although it's seven pm, if you told me it was midnight or noon and I would believe you.
After checking out the Washington Post, stopped and ate at the Post Pub, which had an awesome hamburger called The Diplomat. Also, I hadn't eaten a real meal in about 12 hours, but I'm pretty sure I would have loved it anyway. They had paper copies of The Onion, which I've only read online.
Walked south a few blocks to the White House. I have to admit, even though it sounds corny, I was kind of in awe when I saw it. It definitely makes the statement "Someone important lives here." Now I realize that my home makes the statement, "Chinese food menus welcome."
Here's a photo of me not expecting the photo to turn out because it was so dark:

After stopping for something warm to drink (it's chilly and a little rainy), I checked to see if the local Borders carries the F Minus book. Nope. No wonder this country is going down the toilet, am I right people?
Definitely going to get an early start tomorrow on the National Mall. I'm looking forward to the Smithsonian. In the meantime, thanks for the travel tips, and keep them coming.

Right now I'm at Phoenix Sky Harbor airport about to board a flight to Washington DC. I've never been there and, being kind of a nerd, I'm excited to see some historical sites. It's 11 p.m. and the flight doesn't take off until after midnight.
I used to work here at the airport and I think that's why I don't get as excited about travel as I used to. It was the worst job I ever had. And I used to scoop camel poop at the zoo.
I'm watching a close game between the Dallas Mavericks and the Golden State Warriors, and taking advantage of the airport's free internet. If anyone has a suggestion of what I should see while I'm here (aside from the obvious: White House, Lincoln memorial, nation's largest IHOP) let me know.
