Senate Armed Services Committee Hearing
Having company from out of town gives us an excuse to see and do things we may not typically do. So we looked at the Senate and a House hearings to see if there might be an interesting topic to hear. Really the idea is to go to the office building and see how the hearings feel and sound apart from the news or CSpan. The armed services committee hearing was scheduled for this morning at 9:30 AM. Because the weather has been so uncooperative this week, we drove over and found parking near the Hart Office Building. After passing through the magnetometer, we headed to the second floor to the hearing room. It obviously wasn't as busy as the major appointment hearings we have attended, but was interesting all the same. Things always look different when you see things up close and personal. For a lot of reasons we just are not impressed by any of it - but still is a great way to spend time with our visitors. Since we had a full schedule of things to do, we left after an hour and found our way to our favorite breakfast spot. So far, so good!
