M Street in Georgetown is one of my favourite places in the world. Sad to say though that since my last visit they have installed parking metres right along the length of it. I've rented one of those Chrysler retro cars - it's not quite an SUV but I am sure Gordon Brown would not approve. As if I care... I've just had a very enjoyable dinner with John O'Sullivan at a French Bistro on M Street. John edited National Review Magazine for 9 years and was in Mrs T's policy unit in the 1980s for a time. He's a very big cheese in Conservative politics in the US and we recorded a 15 minute Podcast which I hope you will find interesting when I upload it in a couple of weeks.
