This is a special edition of The Glamorous Life of a U.S. Senator, today in the neighborhood grocery store having run into my friend Senator Mike Rounds of South Dakota. Someone recognized me in the store a couple of months ago and, looking somewhat shocked, said, "what are YOU doing here?". My response was pretty straight forward--Senators have to eat, too (and do the laundry--notice the detergent peeking out at the bottom of my cart). Mike is one of my best friends in the Senate; he's a former governor and just plain level-headed. We worked closely together on the Alexander-Murray healthcare bill which I still hope we can get moving in the reasonably near future. And I guess he has to eat, too. By the way, I tipped him off that organic milk has a longer shelf life than regular. You've got to know these things.
