( 9:25 AM ) teahouse
The Sausage Factory
I just got back from a business trip to Our Nation's Capital.
While there, I took the opportunity to visit the Senate Chamber of the U.S. Capitol and watch the Senators vote on a bill.
Wow! We were so close we could see their facial expressions, watch them schmooze each other, etc.
I also caught a glimpse of both of my Senators.
I also saw the Senate staffers sitting behind the Senators' podiums, along a wall. I noticed that the Democratic staffers sat along one wall, and the Republicans along another wall. There was some glaring and chest-beating.
Afterwards, I walked around the Capitol building and read about the history of the United States Congress, and saw the U.S. flag and felt my chest swell up with pride and acknowledgment of the history I was witnessing.
It was a very Jimmy Stewart day.#
