So Tip O’Neill is getting a government building in DC named after him. From Boston Globe reporter Glen Johnson’s Political Intelligence column:
The federal office building that will bear O’Neill’s name is currently being renovated. It sits between the Hubert H. Humphrey Building, named for the vice president who served under President Lyndon B. Johnson, and a building named for the late President Gerald R. Ford.
Here’s the story currently on the boston.com homepage:
And here’s what was up there earlier today (Tip ! o’ the pixel to sharp-eyed reader John Emery):
Yep – that’s the actor Ken Howard, who played Tip O’Neill several years ago in a play by local writer Dick Flavin.
Now that’s a convincing portrayal.
