get any media attention other than words in newspapers? No photographs, no recordings, no videotapings, just they can be quoted in a paper, no photo of them. Do you think they would still want to be politicians? I don't think so. In th epast that's the way it use dto be, because they didn't have those technologies, so you may have had self serving people, but they weren't the complete narcissists you have today, and I don't think they would even want the job unless they could get as much attention as possible. My congressman, Jim Moran, won't do ANYTHING unless it involves a photop for him.
