Read this: White House underground; Mitt Romney’s dad; Watergate decline; George Allen football picks

The Reliable Source was on vacation for the holiday and will return online today and in print Tuesday. Some other stories from the Post:

When young Mitt Romney was on his Mormon mission, his dad kept an eye on the son’s girlfriend — taking the future Ann Romney to church, giving her advice, making sure she didn’t forget his boy. A portrait of George Romney and his influence on the current GOP sort-of frontrunner.

That big hole they’re digging outside the White House — it’s gotta be a bunker, right? “Make that another bunker,” notes Christian Davenport. You thought the White House didn’t already have at least one? Thanks to height restrictions, “underground is where it’s at in Washington,” he writes in a review of D.C.’s subterranean world.

In other news: Watergate, once Washington’s fanciest address, is losing a little more luster with the closing of its grocery story. . . George Allen takes a break from the campaign trail with football picks that, well, he coulda flipped a coin, but bless him for trying.
