Last week, we looked at more book-related facts. This week, it’s about all things Washington D.C.

Winston Churchill had a heart attack in the White House wile straining to open a bedroom window.

Members of the U.S. Congress are the world’s highest paid legislators.

William McKinley was the first president to ride in an electric car – the ambulance that took him to the hospital after he was shot by an assassin.

President Lyndon B. Johnson enjoyed Fresca so much that he had a special soda-pop tap installed in the White House.

Next week… all things Chinese!
