    •  Regrettably, Alcatraz is no longer a prison (4+ / 0-)

      ...but instead the island prison where Al Capone spent the last years of his life has become a macabre and wildly popular tourist destination.  Can anyone name another Federal Prison which is now a tourist spot?

      I'm confident that Grover Norquist has very, very good attorneys and very powerful supporters in Congress.  He is also in my estimation a loathsome human being, who warrants a great deal more attention.  He took in and spent $30 Million?  How much of that went to his salary?  A Million or so?  How about possible diversion of funds to personal friends and allies of his?  Cayman Island accounts maybe?  That's a LOT of money to be controlled by one very determined and self-righteous individual.  I'm not sure whether he believes he is on a Mission from God, or from Mammon, the personification of greed;

      "Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon." - Matthew 6:19-21,24 (KJV)

      In either case, given Norquist's one-man crusade to browbeat and blackmail our members of the Senate and Congress, he warrants far, far more attention than he has been given.  Has he played fast and loose with the law over the years?  I'd be inclined to think he probably has, in his near Missionary zeal.
