We'll also be screening the new George Lakoff DVD on framing - No need to RSVP but do email in advance if you want to get onto the agenda for the evening.
METRO ACCESS!!! -- We did the research and it's an easy 10 minute bus trip on the 7E line from Pentagon to Shirlington. Buses leave the Pentagon bus terminal (South side of the Pentagon) every 20 minutes. 23A bus from the Arlington metro corridor also works. 23A is a 20 minute trip from Ballston metro. Meeting
