Anybody remember Jack Brooks, the fiesty congressman from Beaumont? (dead today at 89) He was the figure standing behind Jackie in the famous November 22,1963 LBJ Air Force One swearing in photo. Most younger folks on this forum are too young to remember him, espicially during the Iran Conta hearings. He was a hoot! I'm sure Oliver North is glad he's gone. Old Jack tore his ass up and then down during questioning. He also brought home the pork to southeast Texas. NASA was in his district along with Galveston County for many years. He steared more approriations this way than all of the current Texas delagation combined. Does anyone miss this type of politician?
