120. My wife and I toured Taney's house ...
(I made an interesting typo when I first started this note: I wrote "Cheney" instead of "Taney" hmm)

It is the historic district of Frederick, Maryland, which we were touring one summer day, and we decided to walk in, and managed to do so right when a tour was starting. The tour guide got quite nervous by the presence of my wife, the only person of color on the tour. My wife didn't care, we knew exactly who Taney was, and what he was responsible for.

There are statues of Taney in Frederick, Annapolis, and Baltimore, and there have been moves afoot to remove all three from public view.
