Our group leader had ties in the Capitol, so we actually went inside! We saw what it is like to sit in the House! It is grand! Through the halls are statues, two from every state. One of the most notable is from Hawaii. A missionary with leprosy. Such a humble man had to wear a barrel and then his clothes, for his skin was easily irritated. Such figures are common, great and small. Even if you cannot get in, climb the steps, walk around. You're bound to run into a congressman at any time!
