A devoted traveler myself, I've followed with interest House Republican Leader John Burris' Twitters from his State Department-sponsored junket to Europe. It's included stops in Romania, a puddle jumper flight to Croatia and, today, this idyllic Twitter pic.

Burris comments:

Sunset on the Adriatic Sea. And the pizza here is amazing.

Serve any tea around that harbor?

PS — Burris sent me a Twitter to note that the photo was taken on All Saints Day, a government holiday at his current location, so he wasn't skipping out on any official meetings. Noted.

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis.
