Observations, pictures, and sketches highlight the transition of moving to the nations's Capitol after 30 years of living in the Midwest. A clash in cultures? Maybe not!

I don't really know anything about LaFollette, except that I am reminded of him every day in the Madison Building when I pass by the Congressional Research Service on the second floor. And there in the hallway are photos of him, and his son. They are both from Wisconsin, so I feel an immediate connection. We lived in Wisconsin for thirty years, but really don't miss it. But there are reminders here and there. They obviously did something significant- something about "fighting Bob"- but I'm too lazy to look it up.
Why is everything named after politicians and generals?
