That's the understatement of the year. Too bad most of them are elected.

Can you call a set up where when a guy gets caught he can successfully escape into the place he's not supposed to be able to enter - security?

Fox News Channel promise to its viewers: NOTHING will get in the way of their Laci Peterson coverage.

MSNBC is sticking with this (far more important) story.

Congressman Peter King (R-NY) on phone with Bob Kur: Everyone has been ordered to remain in their offices with the doors locked.

Nope, FNC really switched from this story to Linda Oprah Vester and the Laci case.

Except for the fact that they include the conservative side of political stories, FNC is a complete joke. News through a People magazine filter.

I was wondering about the tunnels. If they're only closing them now, didn't he have time to get to one of the other Capitol buildings through them?

FNC showing Capitol rotunda which is filling up with people. MSNBC is showing an outside door to the Cannon; several people are coming out; CNN only having still pic of the outsdie of the Cannon Building.

The Congressional office buildings? Someone wandering through the halls of Congress (literally) with a gun in hand (or in backpack) not a story?

You don't get it at all, do you?

"Tunnels to Capitol being sealed off"

Haven't been there since way before 9/11, but it used to be that the only metal detectors were at the outside entrances...meaning you could get between all three House office buildings, the Capitol and the Senate office buildings without going thru a checkpoint again.

Because the O.J. Simpson case was such a ratings bonanza for them, the cable new channels seem unable to kick the habit of hyping at least one or two legal cases a year. As for me, if I never hear the name Peterson again, it will be too soon.

That's my memory; Presser going on now on CNN.

BTW: The Cannon is the closest building to a Metro station (Capitol South)...

Police have orders to "take the man down"

They later qualified that the police may shoot him but under no circumstance can they intimidate or scare him.

U.S. Capitol Office Building Shut on Gunman Report
Thu October 30, 2003 01:51 PM ET

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A U.S. House of Representatives office building was shut down on Thursday by Capitol police, who said they received a report that a person with a gun may have breached security.

"We have information that someone with a gun made an unauthorized entrance into the Cannon office building," U.S. Capitol Police spokeswoman Jessica Gissubel told a local NBC affiliate. The man was possibly carrying a .38 caliber pistol, she said.
