Twenty-four hours ago I was wrapping up a two-day Liaison Advisory Board meeting for The Washington Center. Because of the road closures associated with the "Nuclear Security Summit", our bus trip from TWC's "new" building to its current one took a few extra twists and turns.
As a result, our group was able to drive by the Capitol, which as you know is my favorite building in Washington, and the White House.
One day later, I find myself in Las Vegas, and as I was shuttled from the airport to my hotel today, I had to chuckle as I looked at Caesar's Palace, New York New York, the Mirage and the other larger-than-life hotels and resorts in this city.
Think about the contrast -- the stately and historic Capitol and the garish and loud Mirage.
What a difference a day makes!
