Looks like the Iowa house will take up (again) that smoking debate Wednesday. Will the members just punt and send this over to a house-senate conference committee for a compromise or will the house take up yet another version of the ban? Maybe just pass the senate version, so everyone can finally move on to something else? BTW, can anyone name anything of significance legislators have done this session? If they don't pass a bottle bill or a smoking ban, what exactly will they accomplish that the general public will actually remember?
As we keep seeing this pictures of Eliot "The Sheriff of the Wall Streetwalkers", I can't help but wonder about his wife. What makes her "stand by him" in public? He's up there talking about how he screwed around on her, humiliated his three daughters and may have broken federal laws to boot, and she just stands next to him. Am I missing something? Why doesn't she just let him have the sleaze stage by himself? Why should she have to do this? Surely, I must be missing something here. Is this how it works in politics?
One other thing...a few female friends have said, they think it might actually be easier to take if their husband cheated on them with a prostitute. A hooker is only a sexual thing they say. An affair with someone else may signal some type of emotional thing. Again, I'm a guy, so maybe I just don't understand this. But does it really matter. I would think if your husband beds down with someone else, it wouldn't matter whether he paid to do it.
