Croghan funny. :)
Y'know why I leapt yesterday, Kitty? I finally decided to treat my procrastination as if I were in therapy or recovery or something. I announced to my co-bloggers that I was doing it. So then ... I had to. :oops:
I left so much out, though. Even of the limited material I have in my own tiny mind, I left so much out.
Ah, I remember John Conyers from that wonderful spring and summer, Conyers and Barbara Jordan and Elizabeth Holtzman (who I gather is still around doing interesting things, although not in the House), and even dear Peter Rodino, who looked as though he was surprising himself by being noble.
And Fred Fielding! The first time I heard his name again, I kept thinking "That Fred Fielding?" Yup; it is. He got out of the Nixon White House before things got really serious, though. But what is that man made of? Cripes -- he's older than I am, a lot older. Don't any of these people believe in retiring? When I was googling around to remind myself about Fred's career, I came across an interview someone did with John Dean, Fielding's old boss, when Bush first took Fielding on board. Dean was fairly nice to Fred -- and we know he'd be critical if he could -- but he did end by saying that he thought Fred was maybe a bit too much into the executive-privilege Kool-Aid of late.
