One question to ask during Brigadier Kenneth J. Mears’ slide-illustrated lecture, “The Tower of London: Facts, Fables, and Famous Ghosts”: What’s the deal with those werewolves? Running around loose, dining in restaurants, “aah-oooing” at all hours—no wonder the Empire is in ruins. Me, I’ve saved all my tourist dollars for a week in St. Thomas. And the weather there is so much better. The brigadier snaps to attention at 6 p.m. at the Museum of Natural History’s Baird Auditorium, 10th & Constitution Ave. NW. $13.
