Rock On Congress
All of us aging boomers probably have a few photographs we wish weren't around.
Fortunately, Congressman John Hall has a sense of humor since interviewers keep bringing up a nice little song, "Still The One" and a group named Orleans.
That's him in front with lots of hair and no shirt, and that's him all alone all grown up with a little less hair, having finally acquired a shirt, tie and a little more dignity. By all accounts his constituents think he will do a good job. Of course most of them probably have a few memories of their own to go with the photographs that should never see the light of day and the skeletons in the closet you probably don't share with the kids.
So congratulations Congressman. Even Colbert couldn't make you look bad and that interview is now immortalized on You Tube and likely to come back to haunt you forever just like the above photograph. Enjoy your stint in Congress and for all of us who managed to finally grow up ... ROCK ON!
