My other favorite offices have candy or biscuits made locally in the states and counties they represent.  I remember in Congressman Zach Wamp’s office there was a bucket of delicious strawberry cream cookies and sure enough they were made in Tennessee.  With back to back meetings I had had nothing to eat so I started wharfing down the cookies before my appointment.  The legislative aide came out and we were halfway into what I thought was a good meeting, when I looked down and saw this pink cookie stuck to my tie.  As we were leaving, she took the remaining four packets from the basket, handed them to me and said, “Have some more, we need you working hard for the Peace Corps.  Can’t have you starved if you’re going to walk on these hard marble floors all day.”
