TWN reader Ben Rosengart who has been with us from day one I think has sent in this picture of a car covered in cherry blossoms. Apparently, it’s cherry- and plum-blossom season in Berkeley, California.
Ben writes: “Also note the calla lily in the far lower right corner.”
Rub it in, Ben. DC is still covered in mounds of perma-snow.

Editor’s Note: Of course, “The View from Your Window” is inspired by Andrew Sullivan’s Daily Dish, and I mimic his great work drawing pics in from readers from time to time. Andrew recently published a set of his reader’s “The View from Your Window” as a book.

    I disagree, Ben.
    A wind-up key would do the little heap justice, and it’d be far cheaper than hubcaps.


  2. Ben Rosengart says:

    Ha. I think my car is a lost cause, aesthetically.

    sorry for the above comment, it belonged in Steve’s next posting re: Obama foreign policy.

    What’s so important about this document? Can you give us
    some background? Was it the foundation for any previous
    president’s foreign policy? If yes, which ones? If no why are
    you making a big deal about it? Also, why do you not
    express criticism of the two most prominent foreign policy
    decisionmakers in this administration, secretary of State
    Clinton and Vice President Biden? Do you feel that they
    simply have been unable to persuade the president of the
    misdirection they’ve taken or are you averse to mentioning
    certain key actors when you like them (if Rahm Emanuel
    were Secretary of State I suspect we would hear vastly more
    criticisms in The Washington Note of the State Department’s
    head than we do now 🙂 ).

    I’d send you our weather if I could, Steve.
    Please remind your friends on the Hill to send us
    some progress on health insurance reform, which
    they actually *can* do.
