I don't like it at all, but I'll break the boycott if you're a regular, Kevin.

My first piece for the Chiseler. This killing upset me 15 years ago, and the policies and policing tactics that led to it continue.

Yes, Congress Has a Role In Foreign Affairs

As the U.S. Congress this week continues to debate legislation to address President Barack Obama’s proposed nuclear deal with Iran, some critics howl that the bill would usurp presidential authority. They are very wrong. The Iran Nuclear Review Agreement…

Me quoted about Obama's double veto and the Senate. 
Senate vote to table a veto override lets Obama's unusual veto tactic stand — for now.

Should we hire 1 million new federal employees? My review of John DiIulio's new book. http://www.weeklystandard.com/articles/pointier-heads_928493.html
I had my first reckoning with big government in a small town in New Jersey. The incident remains startlingly fresh in my mind, although it was years ago. A traffic island on a main road, perhaps 20 feet in length, was being demolished. Perched above the brightly vested construction workers was a white metal sign with black letters. The cost of the project was close to $500,000, much of it provided by the U.S. Department of Transportation. I was g...

President Barack Obama has wielded his executive authority to reduce the amount of military equipment flowing to local cops. His action comes in response to demonstrations of force by policy during the civil disturbances in Ferguson and Baltimore.…

Congress is naming fewer post offices. Why? Because it adopted rules & practices to discourage spending time on them. (Yes, I am quoted i this article.)
Post office naming bills are down—but not out. ;

Massive omelets are served for breakfast at this place, which looked like it had lots of locals in it. My server was very nice and for $13 I left stuffed.

Dining on sushi at the bar was fun. This place was buzzing the night I was there, with lengthy waits for tables. The menu has a huge selection of rolls. The one downside if the barkeeps that night seemed mystified by the order of a gin martini. They were not sure what gins they stocked (none were on the liquor back of the bar), and when they made the drink it came out very watery because they shook it violently. So, best to go with Sapporo or Saki next time. (Visited April 17, 2015)

I enjoyed two appetizers here--grilled octopus and fried cheese raviolis. I ate at the bar, where the rather surly barkeep served me a terrific dirty martini. The gentleman who staffed the men's room was cheerfully loquacious. I'd dine here again. (Visited April 15, 2015)

Bearnaise is a welcome addition to the row of restaurants on Pennsylvania Ave SE at 3rd.I have dined there four times and the service always has been attentive but not overly so. from the meat-heavy menu I have had steak tartare and filet mignon---both were excellent. The Bardot Sling is a refreshing drink, and my espresso was superb. See Bearnaise's website for the menu.

I quite liked dining on steak here. I got luck and landed a quiet table in the corner, where I could sip pinot noir and enjoy the butter and bread that preceded my beef. (Visited April 14, 2015)

I very much enjoyed the downstairs, which is more quiet than the first floor oyster bar. (The oyster bar, by the way, is big and fun.) Michael was the name of my server, and he was terrific. All courses of the meal were excellent, and I left very satisfied. I would most certainly dine here again. (Visited April 16, 2015)

This has become my go-to lunch spot since the Hawk n' Dove was become an over-priced tourist trap. The Tune Inn makes a great BLT, and you'll see the same crew tending bar and serving the tables each day, which gives the place a homey feel. The prices are right too---the wide menu has a lot of dishes that are under $10.
