Drink Up!

This morning's Washington Post Metro Section story explains a lot:

Capitol Hill employees have been advised not to use water from bathroom and kitchen faucets...after tests last month discovered excessive levels of lead in water at the Library of Congress.

One can assume that certain Congressional leaders have been hogging the water fountains for many years!
This link will take you to the EPA page on lead in Washington, DC drinking water.

Outgoing Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge, following a long drink from a Capitol Hill water fountain, does his remarkable Hooty the Owl impression for reporters this morning.
