This is how reputations get perpetuated

Look people, let me try to make this simple for you. Most of the country thinks our fair city is populated exclusively by people in the business of government who have, shall we say, a less than intimate relationship with the truth. A certain moral flexibility. A lack of interest in veracity and accuracy.

Why would they think that? Well, partly it’s because of thirty-plus years of poor perception of politicians. We as a nation are less believers in Mr Smith Goes to Washington than we are All the President’s Men.

And partly it’s because even after several weeks of discussion about how the guy can’t be trusted if he tells you water is wet you still pick his fabricated memoir as your book club selection.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
