Jan 22nd, 2017: Public Housing

Not the public housing the public lives in, the public housing the public pays for.
Of course top of the list is The White House, for the President.
Number two is Number One Observatory Circle where the VP lives.



Quote:
Before that time, the Vice President lived in his own home, but following the John F. Kennedy assassination, Congress decided the VP needed an official residence in 1966, designating “approximately ten acres at the United States Naval Observatory” to build one. The only problem was finding the funding for such a project in the midst of the Vietnam War. So instead of building one from scratch, as a temporary solution, the Secret Service began paying for expensive security upgrades to the private homes of Vice-Presidents, which
seemed like an okay idea until President Nixon’s reign.



Quote:
When Nixon’s VP, Spiro Agnew resigned in 1973, he had only lived in his house for three months, but was able to sell it for a large profit thanks to all the government-paid upgrades, which included extensions to the property as well as a new driveway. None of this sat well with the public and the minor scandal over the VP’s residence led to an immediate change of plans. Since an official residence still hadn’t been built, in 1974, the Admiral’s House at Number One Observatory Circle became the official residence.

I live near there.

I wasn't close enough for this, but apparently the direct neighbors complained about excavation noises for bunkers Cheney dug while he was there.

So the security upgrades continue, but at least the nation gets to keep them,

that sounds perilously close to disclosing the l o c a t i o n.

It might even be very close to Number One Observatory Circle.



Happy Monkey  Thursday Jan 26 10:46 AM

That only gives you the latitude and longitude. Cheney was working on the altitude.

Use Bunker Busters and it won't matter.
