From the Mouth of a Washington Taxi Driver
By Paisley Hibou
The next time you hop into a cab, think about who's behind the wheel. The gentleman who drove me around Washington, D.C. just so happened to be a World War II vet. I asked him the typical tourist question: What's your favorite D.C. attraction and here's what Stanley Tapscott told me:
“I'm 87 years old and I've been driving for the past 50 years. It means a lot to me and I'd hate to lose it...Washington is a beautiful city, so coming up with just two attractions is hard. But if I had to choose, I'd go with the Capitol building or the Library of Congress. I received my Congressional Medal of Honor at the Capitol, while my brother received his at the Library of Congress, both for our service in World War II. That was the most important day of my life. The Capitol and the Library of Congress are such beautiful buildings, too.”
You just never know where you're going to find people like this!
