I just came back from a public golf course. To my surprise , I was golfing with one of the congressmen from Illinois. He was very polite and did not put on any "airs". It may have not been an appropriate time but, I did'nt think I would ever again have the opportunity to ask questions face to face. I asked him how he felt about the MPAA and HDCP. He said he had never heard of them. How informed a vote could he cast? He then shrugged me off said he was there to play golf. I fear that popular perception that "money talks and bull$hit walks" is fact. Can this really be the America I learned in High School.
