COP on the Hill
Stories from the week of February 21, 2020

Good Moments: A congressional staffer I met at CPAC last year saw me eating at the House Subway with the heroin shirt on. In front of the line of 15 waiting to order, he told me about how his boss, the Congressman, lost his son to a heroin overdose. The staffer advised him, that if that son had had access to pure heroin, like the Swiss Addicts do, he would be alive. ( he and I had had a solid chat on the Swiss treatment approach )

I thanked him for his courage to speak truth to power.

While making the rounds in the House, another staffer recognized the hat from last week in New Hampshire. He said hello and we had a solid chat on the issue.

Next week is CPAC 2020 (Conservative Political Action Conference) …12,000 rabid conservatives for four days…always productive for media, fotos with the shirt and I simply enjoy it.
