The flight of the Space Shuttle Discovery wasn't just an awesome mid-day gawking opportunity. It was also our chance to get updated aerial photos of the city, including sweeping views of Hill East and Northwest. Development watcher Geoff Hatchard (that's @imgoph to you, tweeters) came up with the first, and I ran with it, with the usual caveat: MS Paint is a highly inexact medium.

    I chuckled when I saw my place of employment (the J. Edgar Hoover FBI Bldg.) listed as a "Doomed Brutalist Building". Amen to that.

    @John - Crap! Will fix when I have time to re-do the whole map.


    remember when we had a space program and the redskins at RFK... 1 step forward 2 steps back (for mankind)
