Members of Congress are pretty busy people, so I spend a lot of time waiting around in reception areas. Last night, I stumbled upon two odd facts:
The Ronald Reagan centennial has left its legacy on GOP offices. Jelly beans - President Reagan's favorite - can be found in lots of California Republican members' offices. (Wish he was a Sees candy fan...)
And there appears to be a rubber band war going on. No, nobody's shooting them across the House floor. I saw three or four gigantic balls made out of rubber bands on the desks of various staffers. Apparently there's a lot of mail coming in to the office held together with rubber bands, but not much need for them after that. Got any suggestions for using those rubber band balls?
