As of now, I plan to go attend the Blakely forum at the Cato Institute next Thursday at noon (assuming that there is no reason I end up having to go to court that day).
From what little experience I have driving in the DC area, I assume that it would not be a good idea to drive into the city. A friend suggested that I park the car and take the subway in (like I'd know where the subway starts or ends). I'm pretty clueless about this. If anyone has any suggestions I'd gladly take any advice.
