Heard on the Hill

Another Hill aide snapped this pic of the auburn critter circulating with tourists right outside the Capitol. Again, nothing life-threatening to report: just a furry-footed visitor out for a leisurely stroll.

Should our pointy-eared pal ever get outta line, may we suggest putting Sen. Charles E. Grassley on the case?

The Iowa Republican is not only a seasoned farmer, he’s also an avid runner.

By the way, how about we name our new Capitol Hill denizen? Send us suggestions in the comments section below. And keep sending in tips/photos/video of any sightings!
