The videographer says: February 07, 2010 - Yesterday, I decided to take the new Canon EOS 1D Mark IV for a walk in the snow and head towards Dupont Circle in Downtown Washington DC, where the pre-advertised and planned Snow-Wars was going to take place.
Washington is no doubt the boss town in the country for a man to live in who wants to get all the pleasure he can in a given number of months. But I wasn't built that way. I don't want the earth at one gulp. All of us are always losing some pleasure that we might have if we could be everywhere at once. I lose Washington, for instance, for the privilege of saving my life. My doctor told me that if I wanted my three score and 10, I must go to bed early, keep out of social excitements, and behave myself. You can't do that in Washington. Nobody does.
~ Mark Twain, quoted in interview in St. Louis Post-Dispatch, May 19, 1889, p. 20.
