Neither here nor there
First of all, my apologies for any difficulties you may have experienced viewing my cartoons here in recent days. After an exhaustive investigation, it was determined that the trouble was NOT MY FAULT, hence I can offer an apology without having to absorb any blame. We now resume our normal programming.
While my whereabouts are never all that clear, even to me, I have spent a fair bit of time outside the beltway recently, and as people who actually live out there, your suspicions are correct. It's different. Of course everything is ALWAYS different, and one place outside the beltway is different from other places outside the beltway. Still and all, DC is different in its own very special way, and I'm going to reveal that special way in a momentarily.
People assume that beltway folks get absorbed into and compromised by the insidious relationship between the work they know they ought to be doing and what works for their career. And that's surely true enough. But guess what, that's true where you live too. Maybe not as much, but really, admit it. The secret ingredient that defines the unique character of DC as a culture is this: It is a city of former Student Council presidents. Think
back to high school. Now you know everything you need to about DC. --Tom Toles
