My Lunch at Ray's Hell Burger

Today someone I know and yours truly had lunch at Ray's Hell Burger, the nondescript hamburger stand located in a Wilson Boulevard strip mall in Arlington, VA where President Obama lunched with Dmitry Medvedev, the Russian president, this past summer, as shown in the clip above.

To me, it seemed a lot like the Obama administration itself: Disappointing; a lot of filler; cash only--no credit; no hell being raised...although perfectly pleasant.

However, there were a lot of military personnel wearing camouflage, just like when the two presidents visited. They must work in the office buildings nearby, which struck this noncombatant civilian as a bit strange--since they really stood out, in sharp relief, from the other customers.

It was very busy, so plan to arrive early.
