14. Some ways the USA used to be more user-friendly

The first time I was in DC (and haven't been to DC since 1990s) was in 1972. I was a 19 year old white male hippie kid from northern California traveling around the country with a backpack and small suitcase, mostly by Greyhound, staying in youth hostels and YMCAs. Spent 10 days or so in DC at a youth hostel. Went on a Congressional tour where found out I had to have a floor pass to actually enter the chamber to watch the House in session.

Asked tour guide about how to get pass. The guide said from my rep and showed me directory. Proceeded to congressional reps office to get the pass; simply walking down halls, zero security, to reps office where I asked about the pass and showed my CA DL. The aide gave me a pass and we chatted some. Then he said, "How about I buy you lunch", and we went to cafeteria where he recommended the navy bean soup.
