WASHINGTON – It turns out not everyone reviles Congress: Some people actually dream of being there.
On Tuesday, 18-year-old Tom Stephenson of Greenville — who has been diagnosed with a congenital heart condition — got to shadow U.S. Sen. Gary Peters, D-Mich., courtesy of the Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic organization, which helps children with critical conditions see their wishes come true.
In name, at least, he got to be "senator for a day."
