How to access WaPo archives online?

I'm trying to access a series of WaPo articles from 1968-1971, but I'm not having any luck with LexisNexis, Proquest, or the newspaper's website. I know the names/dates of the articles, but they aren't showing up in my LexisNexis searches. (My library's microfilm WaPo collection only goes back to 1974.) Does anyone have another idea of where to look for archived newspaper articles online?

Bus route from Kent Washington to Des Moines Washington

Which bus would take me from East Valley Highway and 180th in Kent Washington to S 234th Street in Des Moines Washington at ten p.m. on weekdays and weekends (if possible)? The metro website hasn't been very helpful so any other sources will be very much appreciated. Thanks

What are the less-obvious ramifications to applying for a gun license?

GunFilter: What, if any, are the less-obvious ramifications of getting both a concealed-carry permit (WA state), and an alien firearms license (which is required in this case to get the permit)? For example, I assume these licenses show up on police computers - might that change the way police interact with you under certain circumstances? Are there other aspects of life where these licenses, or the database entries created by them, might influence situations? [more inside]

Washington State vacation recommendations

My family (7 adults/ spouses in our 20s/30s/40s and 2 parents in 60s) is taking a week vacation in Washington State in mid-August. We're thinking of flying into Seattle and staying somewhere on the Olympic Peninsula. To help figure out where we'll stay, we'd like recommendations for/ against destinations for day hikes, scenic drives, historic locations, etc. We're not backpackers or hard-core hikers, but would like to do some hiking/ outdoor activities.

What to do after all day on the Mall in DC in May?

My husband and I will be returning to DC, where we spent part of our honeymoon, for a 10th anniversary trip during the first week in May (May 1-May 7). I've seen these questions, which cover a lot, but we're also interested in events the locals might know about that we wouldn't hear about coming in from out out town. For location/travel purposes, we'll be staying at a hotel near the Foggy Bottom Metro stop and will not have a car. Thanks in advance for your recommendations.

Where is a good spot to take pictures of a car in Seattle?

What's a good place in or near the greater Seattle area, to park and photograph a car? I'm looking for somewhere which is a nice area or has a nice backdrop, has space to stop a car, and which is generally fairly deserted (so that camera etc. can be set up without constantly being the path of people/cars, and pictures can be taken without having to wait for people to leave the frame, etc). To make things harder, this would most convenient during the day on a weekend, but if a good place is most empty during office hours (or whatever), it might be worth the inconvenience.
