Signs of heightened security are visible everywhere, including here on Capitol Hill where trash cans have been tipped over to prevent the placement of explosive devices, and bags are being thoroughly searched on their way into the Rayburn House Office Building.  Although a comparison that has been prevalent on the airwaves, the scene reminded this reporter of post 9/11 in New York, where trash cans were removed for several years in some public places before slowly making their way back.
