COP on the Hill: Stories from the week of February 17, 2017

COP on the Hill:
Stories from the week of February 17, 2017

Good Guys are here: Wednesday at 1500 was just another day at the office (Senate), when I bumped into Don Murphy of (www.mpp.org) in the hallway. ‘Hey, let’s go to such and such a hearing.’ And off we went.

Before the sunset that night, due to Don knowing everyone well (R Members seem to all recognize him), I had solid, one minute chats with six (6) senators and one Congressman. As I ended each chat, I said to the Senator, “when you need police back-up, call me.” ….this in reference to when mainstream police organizations urge full-speed ahead with the War on Drugs, the Member can call upon LEAP speakers to provide ‘backup.’

As long time readers know, this was my very best day on the Hill in ten years. My head was about to explode from ‘what the heck just happened.’ Thank you Don for the introductions.

Icing on the cake: the next day I finished my rounds off all 100 offices. ALL BY MYSELF –I bumped into Senator Whitehouse (D-RI) in his office. As I started my 1 minute speech, he cut me off with, “I love LEAP.” To which I replied, ‘Thank you and that is all I need to know.’

Hi, Howard: Here’s your latest interview on my show: Spreading Like a Weed.

Thanks for another thoughtful discussion.
