Continuing our series of posts second-guessing the Today Show, we believe Matt Lauer will be at Union Station in Washington tomorrow morning.
Therefore, we can fairly confidently say that tomorrow’s clue will be:
Count the Hills of Rome
Secrets of The Lost Symbol editor Arne de Keijzer instantly worked out that “40.750305, -73.993156” is the latitude/longitude of New York’s Penn Station, “Palmetto” is an Amtrack train, and “#89” goes south.
Meanwhile, members of our Secrets team and the band of Twitterers we have been following, reasoned that the seven hills of Rome probably had a correlation to the seven Amtrak stops between Penn Station and Union Station in Washington.
Secrets’ investigative reporter Dave Shugarts is particularly convinced because many of the landmarks revealed so far have been within jogging distance of each other and because there are many elements of Union Station, such as its statuary, that could be of interest to Dan Brown. We’ll find out in the morning.
