Keith Ellison, according to the WaPo

No rockets here, but the Washington Post has a pleasant update of the life and times of sophomore U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, in which we learn that the Minneapolis congressman keeps a prayer rug rolled up in the corner of his office so he can pray toward Mecca during the workday, that one of the most peace and justice-y of Congressman nontheless was treated to a peace protest sit-in against one of his Iraq war votes, and then the final, ethereal quote about how he navigates from day to day:

“I don’t really have any calculated plan. I’m just doing me.”
