Pat's Postcards: The Library of Congress
The Library of Congress was built to give our Senators and Congressmen access to information they might need while trying to run the country, and it is the largest library in the world. This is the dome, which is hard to see if you are standing front and center on First Street SE, just north of Independence Avenue.
I am proud to have two publications on file there - among the millions of books, recordings and photographs. One is called Little Injustices about how airline passengers can deal with air travel problems, like lost luggage, oversold flights and other travel woes. I wrote that with a grant from the Ford Foundation while working for Ralph Nader's Aviation Consumer Action Project. The other is The Irreverent Guide to Real Estate, I often wish that some nice, wealthy Senator would find it while seeking information about buying a house in Washington, DC.
Wow! Talk about Wishful Prospecting! That takes the cake!
