The "Library of Congress" is the largest library in the world.
Built in 1897, the Library houses two copies of every item for which a person wants a copyright. The largess of the Library is due, in part, to the sheer number of copyright applications from crappy public access shows and crack-pot invention patents archived there.
In addition to the clutter from the crazies, the Library has an impressive collection of artwork and books.
One of the most innovative and uniquely American sections of the Library is the Oral History and the Federal Writers' Project, where regular folks who were eye-witnesses to a historic moment are interviewed. A sound recording is made of the interview and preserved at the Library for all time so future historians may have access to a first-person account of the event.
Here is a list of a few of the groups of people whose stories are preserved by the Library of Congress:
- former slaves
- Pearl Harbor survivors
- Veterans (except liberals)
- Chicks Who Wanted to Vote
The latest edition to the collection is the "Oral History Project for Hurricane Survivors" project. Barbara Bush calls it a natural, saying:
Sampling of The Hurricane Oral HistoriesEdit
This project makes no mention of "Katrina" in it's name, because Katrina is too closely associated with bad stuff despite The Greatest President--EVER!'s single-handed rescue of every single person from the MIssisippi Gulf Coast region--regardless of race or class and the constant interference from liberals every step of the way.

- "I had never been in a hurricane, but my husband, who has lived here all his life, took charge and I did everything he told me to, just like it says in the Bible. I even followed four paces behind him as we drove up to our winter home in Kennebunkport."

By the way, I am running for public office, I sure hope I could visit with The Greatest President--EVER! so I can have a picture for my campaign! U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.!"
