No. 3, The Library of Congress: “The beauty of the Great Hall will take your breath away and rivals anything you’ve seen in Europe.”

He’s right.? But only number three?!? (Just kidding.)? Well, one of the top two spots is apparently his own House office, so that?s not bad at all.

National Archives: “Did you see National Treasure with Nicholas Cage” This is the scene of the “crime”.

Ironically, come December, the congressman might want to put a similar footnote on the Library’s entry about that movie’s sequel!


  1. I read this piece of writing completely about the comparison of most recent
    and earlier technologies, it’s remarkable article.
