WASHINGTON -- Six children were shot as gunfire tore through crowds at the National Zoo yesterday, the result of a feud between youths that began inside the zoo and spilled into rush-hour traffic, witnesses and authorities said. Three victims were in critical or serious condition last night. The most severely injured, an 11-year-old boy, was suffering from a life-threatening gunshot wound to the head. The violence erupted at 6 p.m. in a neighborhood filled with children on holiday from school.

No doubt about it, for folks who live in the Baltimore area, Washington is a wonderful destination for a day trip.Visitors can gaze in awe at monuments to America's past, stroll the halls of world-class museums and listen to legislators debate the rights of men and women.And Washington is only an hour away.Yet summer day trips to Washington have their drawbacks. Throngs jamming the Mall and the city's other major attractions can easily wipe out a tourist's enthusiasm. But take heart: The nation's capital offers savvy visitors a range of lesser-known attractions that don't draw such big crowds as the Washington Monument, the White House and the U.S. Capitol.

Davies, a Democratic insider who helped elect Woodrow Wilson and later became ambassador to Moscow during the presidency of Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
