Friday's Fotos: Oh! No! You idiot! You bought a PC instead of a Mac!

These two ladies have been standing in front of the US Capitol since 1878.  They are the Peace Monument that honors the naval officers and sailors who died during the Civil War. 

If you want to see this 44-foot tall statue the next time you visit Washington, DC, you can find it just north of Pennsylvania Avenue, on First Street NW near the big national green house.
