Honoring An Institution

tune-inn.jpgIn the wake of yesterday's kitchen fire at the Tune Inn, Politico rounds up a few comments from politicos — from governors to White House press secretaries — about just how much the Capitol Hill dive means to them. The New York Times' Carl Hulse says: "It is a dark day on Capitol Hill when the Tune Inn is out of commission even temporarily. It is as least as important an institution as the Supreme Court. There are some irreplaceable artifacts in there so I hope those are okay. But I am sure it will rise again — you can’t burn the character — or the characters — out of a place like that." [Politico]
