Members of Congress arose to deliver humorous remarks at the 49th annual congressional dinner sponsored by the National Press Club and the Washington Press Club Foundation. The annual dinner, which features self-mocking remarks by members of Congress to a gathering of the Washington press corps, is a fund raiser for journalism scholarship programs. Rep. Michel presented the Dirksen Award for Distinguished Reporting on Congress to Janet Hook, correspondent for Congressional Quarterly Weekly Report.
