Bees invade Capitol Hill!


In an unusual sight on Capitol Hill Friday afternoon, beekeepers were called in to capture and remove about 15,000 honey bees that had swarmed around the main Senate entrance of the U.S. Capitol Building, frightening onlookers before landing in a tree.

I’ve had bees try to move into my house, and it’s a weird experience.  One wonders, though: why would a hive of bees move into Congress?  I mean, bees are a potent symbol of Industry, while Congress is an equally potent symbol of Sloth: combine the two, and won’t something explode in response?
