What happens in Vegas might stay in Vegas, but what happens in D.C. might spread around the globe at the speed of sound. Savvy locals have learned not to blab newsy tidbits in public where journalists and others can overhear. Of course, no one would utter a word without the First Amendment’s protections, which include freedom of speech and freedom of the press. Here’s a little trek to some of the institutions that help protect those rights, some news outlets, and some spots that are just plain fun. After all, “pursuit of happiness” is one of our coolest constitutional guarantees. Start at the Federal Triangle Metro station’s exit on the west side of 12th Street NW. Step off the escalator and turn left to walk through the barrel-vaulted breezeway of the Environmental Protection Agency’s headquarters. This curvaceous masterpiece opened in 1934 to house the headquarters of the United States Post Office Department. It’s one of several federal buildings that form the Federal Triangle.
