Welcome to our Dead Letter Suite: Donald Trump plans to turn Washington, D.C.’s historic Old Post Office building into a luxury hotel. And as a Trump International Hotel, the building will display Trump’s name. “The name will be on it somewhere,” Trump said, “but it will be very discreet.”
So, on a historic building on Pennsylvania Avenue, just blocks from the White House, look for 40-foot-high flashing neon letters spelling out “VERY DISCREET TRUMP HOTEL.”
Droning on and on: A state agency has denied public affairs TV network TVW’s request to allow it to use a drone to film the state Capitol in Olympia for a documentary. The drone would disrupt normal conduct of state business, the agency said.
Checking the state RCWs, under “normal conduct of state business,” we find “nap time, governor.”
Don’t know much about history: On this day in 1959, Richard Nixon engaged in his “Kitchen Debate” with Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev.
Relations between the leaders turned even frostier when neither could agree on how to load the dishwasher.
