Oh, to be a kid again. Starting summer vacation and looking forward to camp, instead of slogging through hearings and counting the days until Congress goes on recess.

[IMGCAP(1)]No matter your age, you can get a taste of youthful abandon: The annual Soap Box Derby is running on Capitol Hill Saturday, and the event’s Web site features a nifty kids-eye-view video. Check out what it’s like to careen down Constitution Avenue in a flimsy little car the way the soapbox drivers do (click on the “Virtual Ride— feature).

Sip on a juice box, then get back to (sigh) work.
