Greetings from our nation’s capital! As you can see from my most recent postings, I am making the rounds on the East Coast before I leave for Japan in two weeks. Visiting friends, rekindling business contacts, and enjoying good fare and company have been at the top of my list as I have been to New York, Philadelphia, and Washington over the past three weeks. Here is how the Capitol Rotunda Dome looked yesterday. I was a tour guide here along with being a Senate intern in 2011.
