The pres is scheduled to journey our fair corner of the world today, stopping over at the NSA, as part of a public relations push to extend the Protect America Act. Such visits used to be big deals---we remember when a stop by Swedish King Carl Gustav XVI made the girls swoon at Bryant Woods back in, what, 1976?
But now we wonder if anyone other than the national media will notice. If a president stops at a super secret intelligence installation and the general public isn't around to witness, does it happen?
It probably depends. Back on our anniversary tour of Monterey, Calif., we stopped by a state park filled with giant coastal Redwoods. The better half of the Columbia Team remarked that if one of those babies decided to relocate, you'd hear it.
