To the Editor:

This week, I received a disappointing text from my younger granddaughter. She is in Washington, D.C., on a “bucket list” trip.

Yet self-serving partisan politics have prohibited her from visiting the national treasures, paid for by American taxpayers, but shut down by shameless elected officials.

Don’t pour me a glass of tasteless Kool-Aid (red or blue), I blame both sides — the president and the members of Congress.

Their paychecks will not be tied up in one-upmanship.

Stephen Covey’s “Seven Habits of Highly Successful People” ought to be a required reading BEFORE anyone seeks the honorable offices; especially “Win-Win,” “Seek to understand, then to be understood” and “Synergize.”

A bright note is that the Holocaust Museum and Bible Museum are open.

Interesting how “religious” institutions can keep their message open to the public.
