Astro0 linked to some home videos by Congressman John Culberson in the MER forums, where the congressman visits Steve Squyres: http://qik.com/video/86776 and http://qik.com/video/86776

The congressman was fortunate enough to also be at the JPL when Phoenix landed. See these pages for the videos:

And great to see a scientifically/technically literate politician asking intelligent and informed questions. A few more like this wouldn't go amiss...
