Good News and Bad News

The good news is that a West Point classmate of mine has been elected to represent Kentucky's 2nd District in Congress--and he's a Republican!

The bad news is that I'm old enough to have a classmate in Congress.

Com'mon Darren, you KNOW your US Constitution.....a citizen must be all of 25 years of age to be duly elected as a member of the US House of Representitives.....DUDE, THAT ain't old.

But hey ! You got an ear in Congress now !

Seeing that he's a Republican I can assume he actually had a job before he turned to the dark side and ran for office. Just curious, what did he do beside the Army?

Also, I second the notion you ain't old...if only for the fact I got you by a couple of months.

Polski, Congress isn't known for all the 25-yr-olds running around the Capitol!

Mike, I don't know what he's done in the interim.

I'll sympathize when you have a President who's younger than you are. Cough, cough.

Does this mean that I can call you old now?

Mine is worse. I have a former high school classmate who is a federal judge in Houston. A liberal nutjob federal judge. But then I also have a former high school classmate who is pastor of First Baptist in Dallas who is currently being picketed for preaching the following sermon: "Gay is not O.K." which I find pretty funny because in high school we all thought he was gay....

Darren,

The true definition of old is when your classmates have children who have already graduated from our Alma Mater.

I'm old. You soon will be.
