    in part by African-Americans slaves. And, of course, the building has been added onto, rebuilt and restored dozens of times over the years with thousands of workers drawn from many racial and ethnic backgrounds. OMG -- there were probably gay men and lesbian women involved as well. Oh, the humanity! There were Muslims and Christians and Jews, oh my. Atheists no doubt played a part as well. Smart folks and stupid ones. Liberals and conservatives. Whigs, No Nothings, Democrats and Republicans. That's why the Capitol is such a cool building -- it is so much like the country itself. We all are still building it. Good lord, Pat, crawl back under a rock.
