Odds and Ends: March 11 2017

March 11, 2017

A couple of interesting articles today. First, Carl Abbott of Portland State University discusses the myth that DC was built on a swamp (it was not) in The Conversation.

Second, Vox interviews Patrick Gonzalez of NPS and UC-Berkeley about how the trend of DC’s cherry blossoms blooming earlier and earlier is a sign of climate change.

Enjoy!
