K Street Confidential

K Street Confidential

This is exactly how I like to describe what I do. Jeffrey Birnbaum from the Washington Post gets it.

"Lobbyists provide most of the information that government decision makers use in their work. Regulators and legislators have no choice but to listen to lobbyists. But they don't have to believe them. Good government officials get data from all sides and make independent decisions."

OK, this is too funny not to post...

My friend Jay, who happens to be gay, shared the following about his childhood:

"Little kids are mean. They would run around the playground chanting "Gay Jay, Gay Jay". I would chase them back, screaming "I AM NOT GAY" and try to hit them with my purse."
