Heard: Secret Tunnels

This week, I ended up in the same elevator as an intern and her tour group as she was explaining the House/Senate/LOC tunnel system to her small group. Only it didn’t stop at the House, Senate, or LOC. She began explaining how “all the important DC buildings” (including the White House, Supreme Court, FBI Building, and Treasury Department) are all “connected by secret tunnels” under the city. She explained how because she was an intern she wasn’t privy to “all of the tunnels” but that she hoped to make her way “to the White House tunnel at some point.” See if she could “sneak a peek at Obama making a quick trip over to/back from Congress”. I had to stifle a laugh, and didn’t have the heart to correct her.
