On January 17, Senator Peter Fitzgerald (R-IL) paid his first visit to Fermilab. He brought with him a lively interest in physics. "What effect do the discoveries you make here have on Einstein's theory of general relativity?" Fitzgerald asked CDF spokesmen Al Goshaw and Franco Bedeschi during a tour of the CDF detector. Goshaw said it was the first time he could remember being asked that question by a U.S. Senator. Fitzgerald also pledged support for a strong future for Fermilab. "Any new accelerators built in the U.S. should be built right here," Fitzgerald said.
