1. Today’s Capitol Lens: Balancing Act

    Ben Hutson of New Hampshire holds his son, Liam, for a picture in front of the Lincoln Memorial. Green paint is seen near Lincoln’s foot, the remnants of an act of vandalism on July 26. Crews have been working to clean the paint off but have not been completely successful. Similar incidents have been reported at the Washington National Cathedral and on the statue of Joseph Henry at the Smithsonian Castle.
