Lynne Sweet examines Richard Durbin's new digs:
Durbin will work in ornate splendor. The suite, dating from the 1859 addition to the Capitol, has five wood-burning fireplaces and two baths. The groin vault ceilings are lit with an assortment of brass, bronze and crystal chandeliers, reproductions of the original gasoliers. The floors are the original English Minton tiles.
FYI: The "groin vault" is one of the least popular Olympic events.
