ICYMI - Via <a href="http://www.wusa9.com/story/news/local/alexandria/2014/08/21/the-75th-anniversary-of-the-alexandria-sit-in/14418145/" target="_blank">WUSA9</a> (video below), in Alexandria, Virginia 75 years ago, African Americans were not even allowed to use the public library.

Hard to believe that I have been alive longer than this iconic landmark roadway (just barely though). On this day 50 years ago, the final link of the Capital Beltway opened. In honor of this, WTOP has some cool shots of one of the most famous interstate highways in the country with <a href="http://www.wtop.com/862/3682358/Capital-Beltway-celebrates-50-years#idx1" target="_blank">some photos from then and now</a>. If you have never driven on the 'Beltway', see what it's like above.
