    Yeah for some of these there is a clear kodak moment. For others...... For Ms. Hall? I mean shredding docs is probably her 15 minutes of fame. Could take a pic in front of the NSC but that might not go over too well with the not-so-secret service. Could take pic out front of the Nicaraguan Consulate. I guess you could also take a pic out in front of Reagan Airport altho that too is a bit weak.

    If the peanut gallery awards you three points, then the wisdom of the crowd approves!

    From Wikipedia: "Contemporaneous conjecture placed the book under the joint authorship of Clarence King,*John Hay*and Henry Adams and their spouses who lived side by side on H street in*Washington, D.C.*and were collectively sometimes called "the Five of Hearts."

    Photo is of the Hay-Adams hotel that now sits where their houses were... Thanks to non-Vision Zero compliant construction, I couldn't get closer.

    And NemaVeze gets the point for Hinkley

    Next: The ultimate Freezing Saddles item - the best team ever - the winner of last year's competition: Slacker

    Please remember that your bicycle is required to be in the picture.

    Also, this is not a winner-take-all game - as Oprah would say "You get cool swag and you get cool swag and you get cool swag" - anyone can join at any time

    From the link: "Those who avoided participation in the draft came to be known as “slackers.”* Derived from the Latin “laxus,” the word was used primarily for nautical purposes prior to the war; a description for a slow moving current (e.g., a “slacker tide” or “slacker water”). Once the war effort began, however, “slacker” became shorthand for a range of activities perceived to be unpatriotic."

    Here is DC's memorial to the "slacker" antonym, those who did serve, and died, in WWI.
