I will admit that – like Prince Harry – I may have been traumatized as a child, but every time I hear about the need for a new “Church Committee,” I get a little nervous.
When I was in junior high school, I had a fairly large morning paper route (sorry to say, the Washington Post). Senator Frank Church was on my route and was very insistent that I place the paper each day behind the storm door. No throwing the paper on his lawn!
More importantly, if I was ever there after about 6 a.m., the Senator would be standing at the door with a severe scowl on his face. Some mornings, we would coincide at the door and he would scare me to death!
I had to re-arrange the route so his paper was delivered as soon as possible and got up before 4 a.m. to make sure it was delivered as early as possible.
I would finish and go back to sleep before I needed to get up to go to school. To this day (60 years or so later), I’m still wide awake around 3:30 and get very sleepy around 6.
Please, find another name to compare the commission to.Published in
