Bill, thanks for the scholarship.
I remember when I lived and worked in Louisville, there was a county judge (administrator) who installed an electrified fence around the downtown prison and claimed the fence would "fry 'em like bacon."
Henceforth, he was known as "the bacon-makin' judge."
Maybe still is.
Also from my old stomping grounds, there is Sen, Joe Manchin, who loves his gigantic boat, a symbol of the riches he makes from dirty coal and other anti-ecology abuses. He sometimes patronizes protestors from the deck of his yacht. I call him "The Commodore."
Thanks, GV
