Jen’s coworker’s wife works for the federal government, in the budget office. With that she has access to the White House, and arranged for Jen, MaryBeth and I to go on a behind the scenes tour of the West Wing. We weren’t able to take any pictures inside the White House itself, but we got a bunch in the Old Executive Building, including the basement bowling alley. It was cool being just a step outside the Oval Office, looking at the Lincoln Desk, where Nicolas Cage found the hidden compartment in National Treasure 2. I think…it’s been a while since I’ve seen that one, and it’s not the classic that the first one is.
