I-675 [ uncrop, zoom out ]
President Bush was in town yesterday. Traveling between a speech about the Iraq war at the Air Force Museum and a fundraiser down the road. We crossed paths, kinda.
Somehow Dan and I managed to get on the highway at the exact point before they shut down all the exits and blocked the turnarounds in the median.
It was downright spooky: Our empty side of the highway and his procession approaching.
As we passed I can’t deny a tingling sensation—likely from the notion that a v. powerful person in the world was in such proximity.
I had to respect that.
But I can’t deny I felt immediately better when there was some distance between us.
I’m looking forward to some time apart as well.
