Making Congress Safe for Kids

At dinner last night, in the wake of Foley's resignation, my husband said that maybe it would be safer to just not let teenagers serve as pages anymore. Is that where we are? Can we not trust our elected representatives to protect our children? Apparently, not. It is interesting to me that Foley was a leader in passing tough legislation to stop adults from preying on our children. I have a working theory that the more tightly wrapped someone is on the outside, the more chaotic they are on the inside. Just a theory. So, what are your thoughts? Is Congress safe for our kids?

What a hypocrite that man is! It also bothers me that his activities were known BEFORE the recent matters hit the fan. As for being "tightly wrapped" ---in one of the film clips shown on TV he looked as if he were going somewhere to model his new suit.
