Post, from whom she inherited the company when she was still a young woman. Still, I sometimes speculate on what I would do with my money if I had lots of it. Would I work?

The spots on the political leopard are about to change again. As George W. Bush prepares to take the White House, the nation's capital finds itself, once again, in a cultural mood swing, a phenomenon that no other city in the country experiences more than fickle Washington. Perhaps because of the city's political significance, Washingtonians tend to be consummate observers and taste makers. They sleep, eat and drink with their fingers on the pulse.
