    was sooooo much less boring, lol.

    The mug shot of Crapo reminds me of "The Noble Alcock" from that old Masterpiece Theater Series circa 1980, "To Serve Them All My Days".

      2 AM, Wilbur Mills, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee (arguably the most powerful committee in congress), is stopped for drunk driving. A woman (Fannie Fox, who is employed as a stripper), jumps out of the car and runs away, jumping into the tidal basin.

      I'm sure Mills said something like "Don't you know WHO I AM?" With alcohol on his breath.

        point out the place in the tidal basin where it happened. He made a big splash, so to speak, without even getting wet.
