Something that isn't well advertised but worth noting is that most of t=

other network news clips Vanderbilt has (besides CNN) are available for=

viewing only, no copying, at the Library of Congress. They have a
workstation or two that accesses streaming files from Vanderbilt. So i=

you find yourself in Washington for any length of time you'll have
something to do after you've visited the monuments.
