I had forgotten about this, until a correspondent had brought it up.
So, why is access to the Capitol tunnels tightly controlled? It sounds as if they’re not tunnels of transit, but tunnels of naughtiness.
Doesn’t anyone remember why they always get closed? Illicit sexual rendezvous. And, the tunnels were a known benefit of being a DOT or Capitol employee. After the no smoking rule got put in place, it became the indoor smoking place to go.
Smoking and Sin.
Maybe the state should keep them off limits.
