Gottheimer Wishes DC Had More Diners Like New Jersey’s
 

New Jersey Rep. Josh Gottheimer brought Roll Call politics reporter Simone Pathé to Jimmy T’s diner a few blocks from the Capitol, heralding the hole-in-the-wall eatery as reminiscent of the many diners in his home state.

“There’s nothing obnoxious and fancy, or stuffy, about a diner,” Gottheimer said, comparing the unpretentious air of a diner to what he calls "New Jersey values."

20 Years Ago, a Deadly Shooting in the Capitol Changed Life on the Hill Forever
 

On July 24, 1998, a schizophrenic man with a gun walked into the U.S. Capitol. The ensuing rampage resulted in the deaths of two Capitol police officers, Detective John M. Gibson and Officer Jacob J. Chestnut, who saved the lives of Majority Whip Tom DeLay, his staff and countless others. The incident changed the Capitol community forever, boosting momentum for construction of the Capitol Visitors Center and much of the security we experience today.

Roll Call looked back at that tragic day, speaking to lawmakers, law enforcement and journalists who covered the story.
