The family just spent two and half days in Washington DC visiting museums and taking tours. Washington is one great civics and PR lesson. Over and over you are taught that the country in which you live has a constitution and government that allowed the development of inventions and industry and a political history of growing freedom. Even museums that concentrate on art have a story to tell of how American citizens were at the root of how they were conceived and built. It is all overwhelming and one soon becomes foot-sore and weary. But, there are lifetimes of learning packed just into the Mall, not including museums away from the Mall, of which there are many. Washington is the great museum town of the earth today and should be the destination of every citizen. It is an example of PR at its best.
