I was in the Boston airport late this morning flying to LaGuardia. As I was talking on my phone, I recognized Congressman Barney Frank walking past me.
Not wanting to miss the opportunity, I hung up my cell phone and approached Congressman Frank. Here is our conversation:
Me: "Congressman Frank (handshake), why are you holding H.R. 1207 in committee?"
Frank: "What is 1207?"
Me: "Ron Paul’s bill to edit the Fed."
Frank: "Oh, yeah. Ron and I have talked about that. We are going to attach it to a comprehensive monetary Fed bill."
Me: "But you’re not going to water it down, right?" Frank: "No, we don’t want people to trade off of what the Fed is doing so we don’t want it released the same day."
Me: "Cause the American people deserve to know what the Fed is doing?"
Frank: "That’s what I just said. You come up to me and you’ve got a chip on your shoulder. And I don’t understand it!" Turns and walks away.

Maybe Frank, thought Kane was going to ask him out on a date. Perhaps I guess Kane was just too old for the type of guys Barney usually goes out with. I think Barney likes his "men" a little more feminine, and younger.
