So this is kind of interesting.

I've been reading Woodward's latest, "The price of politics, " which is classic Woodward inside baseball. Anyway, I was googling some of the key players in the budget negotiations and I discovered that John Boehner and my Dad grew up in the same town and went to the same high school. Small world.

    You're lucky. Son of Sam grew up in my Dad's hometown. There really is no way to bring that up at dinner parties. And yet oddly enough, my Uncle still does.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Ridgemont High?

    Boehner: My brother's gonna kill us! He's gonna kill us! He's gonna kill you and he's gonna kill me, he's gonna kill us!
    Mr. Sherb: Hey man, just be glad I had fast reflexes!
    Boehner: My brother's gonna ****!
    Mr. Sherb: Make up your mind, dude, is he gonna **** or is he gonna kill us?
    Boehner: First he's gonna ****, then he's gonna kill us!
    Mr. Sherb: Relax, all right? My future son is a lawyer type guy, he's got this ultimate set of tools. I can fix it.
