If only I had the money and time ATM.

An aside:

Fond memories of DC:
Was elected to a medical committee during my residency training and attended meetings 3 to 4 times yearly for 2 glorious years (all expenses paid, which was what made it possible as a single mom getting by on a resident’s salary).

I remember dragging into the hotel at about 2:00 AM after a rough night on call followed by flying cross country. I stepped onto the elevator to find it occupied by none other than Louis Farrakhan and his two bodyguards. My floor arrived first. Before the elevator doors closed, I turned around, waved, and said “Hi, Louis. I’m a Jew.”

Good times…
