Ten random things: June 30

Ten U.S. Senators in Advise and Consent by Allen Drury:

  1. Nelson Lloyd (junior Senator from Illinois)
  2. Douglas Brady Bliss (junior Senator from North Carolina)
  3. Kenneth Hackett (junior Senator from Wisconsin)
  4. Royce Blair (senior Senator from Oregon)
  5. Clement Johnson (junior Seantor from Delaware)
  6. Lacey Pollard (junior Senator from Texas)
  7. Leo P. Richardson (junior Senator from Florida)
  8. Billy Canfield (junior Senator from Mississippi)
  9. Lafe W. Smith (junior Senator from Iowa)
  10. Dick Althouse (senior Senator from Maryland)

I finished Allen Drury's Pulitzer Prize-winning political novel this weekend. It's a little dated, and the language is a little stilted, but a good read. I was impressed that he went to the trouble of creating names for 90 Senators... though, come to think of it, I wonder why he didn't bother making up names for the other ten.
