    Lots of people like to compare DC to Paris because of the height limit - maybe we can aspire for this similarity as well.

    I'd love to do that - but I work in the boonies, and there's no easy dry cleaners that I can see. And if I were to take the clothes in on the metro, I'd lose a day on the bike. Plus, while we have...
