Capitol Hill has become the main driver of my weeks. When in session, crazy busy; when not (like now), next to dead. I like not worrying about wearing a tie for several days in a row, but the days do tick by that much slower. Even if there’s no hearing or big news event, when Congress is in session, I can go up and try to stalk senators for a bit (even though it tends to be the same ones—Rockefeller, Thune, Wicker, Leahy, Pryor, etc.).
God help me once August hits. At least I have family visiting for part of that month.
