Heard on the Hill

When Oscar the Grouch Met Indiana Jones

The folks over at the Smithsonian Museum of America History on Wednesday set up a nifty "Smithsonian on the Hill" event in the foyer of the Rayburn House Office Building. Among the artifacts will be stuff familiar to anyone who grew up watching "Sesame Street" or the "Indiana Jones" movies.
