Darker colors indicate more searches… does that mean the sweet potato casserole is really popular in the south, or do we just not know how to make it?

Here’s a nice picture of everyone in Congress playing solitaire…


From Casey’s Daily Dispatch:

Here we see House Minority Leader Lawrence F. Cafero Jr., R-Norwalk (standing on far right) speaking while colleagues Rep. Barbara Lambert, D-Milford, and Rep. Jack F. Hennessy, D-Bridgeport, play Solitaire as the House convenes to vote on a new budget.

Also, you’ll notice the guy sitting in front of these two to the right is on Facebook and the guy behind Hennessy is checking out the baseball scores.
