  13. I remember when the Governor’s secretary was gone to lunch and you could walk right into the Governor’s office at the Capital and steal jelly bellys off his desk! Of course, I was only about 15.

  14. There was a man named either Simpson or Stimpson who would walk around the Capitol with large signs protesting then-governor Reagan.
    I remember going into David’s Brass Rail with my father when there was a parking lot behind it. There were X-rated bookstores on J street.
