Heard on the Hill: Take Five!

Every week, HOH gets to know a Member of Congress better through a series of five fun questions. This week, we sat down with Rep. Tim Griffin (R-Ark.) and found out about his wifeís best recipe, his collection of books and the job he had while at grad school in England.

Q: If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

A: To transport myself to different places quickly so I could always cut out the travel time. Teleporting, flying, a Superman-type deal, thatíd get you there pretty fast. And then I could run home and see my kids. I could go down and have lunch with my kids in Arkansas and then be back here for votes.

Q: Whatís your favorite dessert?

A: Peach cobbler. My wife makes a great everything. Itís not my favorite food, but my wife makes incredible tacos ó beef, hard-shell, ground beef tacos. My 4-year-old loves it.

Q: Whatís your favorite kidsí movie?

A: I was watching ďBee MovieĒ the other day, but thatís not my favorite. My current favorite would be ďGnomeo and Juliet.Ē My kids loved it, absolutely loved it.

Q: Do you have any hobbies?

A: I ride motorcycles. I run ó I donít like it, but I do. I like to travel with my family. I collect books. Iíve got probably 1,000 books. I have a library. In my new house I built a room where every wall is shelves.

Q: Whatís your favorite book?

A: Anything C.S. Lewis. I have probably about 30 books that are C.S. Lewis or related to C.S. Lewis. I studied him in college. I worked in a pub where he used to hang out with J.R.R. Tolkien. Itís called the Eagle and Child, in Oxford.
