MARYLAND—The most expensive property in Md also has the best man cave around.
BELLEVUE—There's an almost-complete library that had its fair share of critics for being too architecturally-inspired (Marion Barry himself criticized it), but that didn't stop the person who came up with the design from explaining how architecture can be a force for social change.

VIDEO INTERLUDE—The Colbert Report picked up on the statehood for the moon discussion, brought to us by Gingrich. Click over for the video and to hear a contender for our new non-state motto: Suck it dipped in Tang!.
