    Any idea who the top spending lobbyist was last year?

    You should probably contact your state representative and senator.

    So, he doesn't have time to talk to the the university system officials as a part of business, but he has time to go to a football game?

    Does he realize just how stupid he sounds?

    Unfortunately, it's probably not uncommon in other states.

    Most state legislators, and their top aides, will jump thru fiery hoops, walk barefoot over hot coals, swallow razor blades and crawl naked over broken beer bottles for free bassetbawl and fottiebawl tickets.

    Most especially, free tickets for really good seats. At really good games. Say fer instance, seats in the president's sky box at some of those sold-out, network-broadcast games against really big-name opponents...

    I know for a personal fact that UK and UofL basketball tickets (and, recently UofL football tickets), are a very, very, very damn hot commodity in Frankfort, KY. Consequently, those two schools get pretty much whateverthehell they want when the legislature is in session...

    I'm betting it's the same in every other state.

    Well..........., in every other state that has decent teams.

    Once again proving, the system still works.....

    In Georgia members of the General Assembly do not have paid staff or am I wrong about this?
