It’s only been two weeks, but some Members couldn’t wait until Monday to reunite with their Congressional friends.
A number of Members of Congress planned to attend Friday's scheduled launch of the space shuttle Endeavor at the Kennedy Space Center. Among them: Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, in a rare outing since the shootings in Arizona, to see her husband, astronaut Mark Kelly, off on the mission.
Alas, it was not to be. Due to engineering problems, the launch has been scrubbed for at least 48 hours.
Visitors get their first look at the American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial, which opened to the public on Monday, Oct. 6, 2014. The new memorial is located off Independence Ave. SW between the Rayburn House Office Building and HHS. Buy photo here.
