Sundry Curiosities

1) I saw (yet another) sign in the Northeastern US about "Here was Washington's Camp -- August Something, 1780." Wasn't he supposed to be leading the revolutionary forces? What was he doing going around camping all the time?

2) In Brooklyn last night, the restaurant I ate at had a sign at the door reading, "Drinking During Pregnancy May Cause Birth Defects -- By Order of NYC Local Law 603." Does this mean that before that law was passed, drinking during pregnancy was innocuous?

3) A while back I wrote about the unusual "combo businesses" one finds in New York City. I'm typing this in an Internet Cafe / Beauty Salon.
