A modest proposal

"Hastert told CNN Monday that he does not recall being told by Reynolds about the e-mails between Foley and the Louisiana teen, although he did not dispute that the conversation may have happened.

'If he did, he brought it in with a whole stack of things,' the speaker said." (link)

I have an idea. If you are a member of Congress, carry around an index card in your jacket pocket. If anyone suggests to you that there may be an inappropriate situation involving a colleague and a minor, calmly take out the the card, note the date and information, and then decide how to proceed. I know you are all busy, and I'm sure that it is tough to keep straight all the information coming at you. I want to humbly suggest, though, that this is something that is pretty important to keep track of.

Oh, and by the way, if you think this is impractical because such an index card would fill up too quickly, let us know. We'd appreciate hearing that, too.

No need to thank me. Glad to help.
