    I wandered in here on a rainy day, not expecting to love it. It was fantastic and interesting! The Lady Bird gardens were totally worth the visit, too.

    I love visiting Presidential Libraries and the more controversial the better. LBJ is not as interesting as Tricky Dick, but his swearing in after Kennedy was assassinated is still burned in my mind. Then there are the pictures with Senator Johnson nose-to-nose with a colleague he was successfully intimidating to vote his way. His raw political skills are still unmatched and worthy of both scorn and admiration. He's also one of my Dad's favourite historical figures, especially as a part of his voracious readings.

    I don't come to Austin very often, but this is where I try to stop when I do. And on one of these visits, I got the opportunity to see Isaac Bashevis Singer in person.

    Even though Presidential Libraries tend to emphasize the positive and minimize the failures, they are always a fascinating way to relive history. And whether that subject is Civil Rights, the Vietnam War, or even Lady Bird, the LBJ Library is a rich source of historical wonder that is worth every minute you put into this place. And it's Free.
