Super Bowl Ethics: Indiana and Illinois Lawmakers Turning Down Game Tix
Speaking of congressional ethics, as in the previous post, the WSJ's political blog Washington Wire reports here that "[m]ost lawmakers from Illinois and Indiana, fearing adverse publicity and new rules, shun Bears-Colts clash in Miami. Politicians and aides can accept tickets from corporations for face-value price, but Chicago-area Reps. Emanuel and Kirk opt to remain home. 'Folks are real wary,' a Democratic aide says."
Good call, plus SAT quiz: Loch Ness Monster, UFOs Over Rural Mississippi, Sasquatch, Face-Value Super Bowl Tix. [Alan Childress]
