Dear Mister Wonderful,
I am spending time in Washington, DC and am quite overwhelmed by the range of landmarks, museums, historic houses, and other assorted hotspots around town. Can you recommend a list of "must-sees" here in the District?
Dear Mary Land,
Actually, I seem to recall losing some Innocence in the middle of the Potomac back in 1985. Could you see about picking it up for me? It's sort of purple and glowing and tied up with a really thin white leather tie and attached to an investigator from the Meese Commission. Thanks.

Mister Dark recommends visiting Ford's Theatre to take in the "Great Moments With Mister Lincoln's Brain Matter" tour.
Mister Malice recommends the Tidal Basin just north of the Jefferson Memorial for suicides. "Do it during the spring Cherry Blossom festivities for maximum poignancy. Do it with sodium in your pockets for maximum fun."
