Helping To Put Things In Context: Something You Should Know About D.C.
Everyone knows Washington, D.C. for being the nation's capital where decisions are made that affect the country itself and impacts the world at large. But between the time that politicians and special interest groups like to use the city as the reason for all that ails America, it has a more intimate side. This is the side that one could think of as the "local" aspect of the city. I think if people understood what really exists within the boundaries of this diamond shaped (minus a complete side) metropolis, their perspectives may be altered considerably. As AWashingtonWoman will continue to focus on some of the wonderful women who make up the fabric of the DMV (a term used for the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area and includes: the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia), we will also strive to give you a little of the backstory, as objectively as we can. So it's been a year since this all began and without really trying, this blog has exceeded what our expectations were. So we are thinking that with a little love and a lot of integrity, we can share some real true insight which can be entertaining as well as informative. Who knows?.... Maybe it will even be ..... helpful.

Malia Obama Gets The Special Joy Of Having Your Father Share His Views On the Perfect First Car
It is hard to believe that we are watching the president's daughters grow up before our very eyes. The first born of the President and First Lady is Malia, who so appropriately celebrated her 13th birthday this past 4th of July. Well, as she inches ever so closely to that magic age when learner's permit and driver's license is the topic at the family table, her dad is already ahead of the game.
Recently while addressing the auto industry, President Obama expressed that he already has the prototype for the perfect car for his daughter all thought out. Seems that part of improving standards to suit his needs for his girls it would include topping out at speeds of 15mph and have an ejector seat for any time boys are in the car. Hmmm.... Got that car industry?
