It's YOUR Capital...

But don't expect to be able to see it.

Political Wire story:

Google Blurs Nation's Capital

"When Google updated its satellite maps of Washington in June, it had two options: Use the newest, most detailed aerial photos from a government agency that blocks such top-security spots as the White House and the U.S. Capitol, or continue to use older, less-detailed images from a private company that doesn't block out anything," the Washington Post reports.

"The compromise? Google chose the new maps for most of the city but spliced in the older, fuzzier ones for about one-sixth of the District to include an unblocked view of the president's home and the Capitol."

Not a bad metaphor for the last 7 years or so...
