6. I could care less @ the dots, love the photos
That is so kind of you to take the time to post the photos for us.

Dr. King would have cared more about your kindness than the dots.

7. Sorry, I hate it when people play teacher with me too.
But geographical ones get to me. :D I was trying to think where in Seattle that could have been. Was fairly certain it was DC though with the state street name.

11. It is ok.
It was one of those "d'uh" moments for me.

:rofl:

I even went and got another cup of coffee and I still don't feel like I am waking up. It is going to be one of those kind of days.

4. Not necessarily. Plenty use Washington DC.
Including the official tourism site: http://washington.org / and another popular one: http://www.washingtondc.com /

And the official DC government site: http://www.dc.gov/index.asp

9. Don't wonder ~ he was at the church because he wanted to honor Dr. King
And he honored him in a magnificent way!
