Urban camping

The homeless in our nation's capital aren't the only people [intentionally] sleeping on the streets tonight. Individuals hopeful for a seat during tomorrow's District of Columbia v. Heller oral arguments are camped out in front of the Supreme Court. The line started about 40 hours before the event, and it appears that the line is now at capacity. Temperatures will be near freezing again tonight, but an event like this is probably worth the privation, particularly for someone whom is younger than their mid-20s.

I do hope that someone offers to take Angela A., 19-year-old GWU sophomore, shooting. The NRA range isn't far away (City of Fairfax), and is a very nice range. I'll bet she gets at least one offer as a result of this week's line-sitting.
