When you're in Washington and voting, you don't have the one-on-one interaction with your constituents that you do when you read more

When you're in Washington and voting, you don't have the one-on-one interaction with your constituents that you do when you are in the district working out of the district office.

We would do a tour into the elementary schools every year, and then we did another kind of program where upper level students were brought into E.J. Thomas for a performance.

The only thing I can figure out without going into the motor is that it looks like it broke a main stud (one of three inside the engine which holds the crankshaft in place), ... From there, somehow it wedged the rod in the cylinder which eventually led to it breaking. As soon as it started, you could tell something was wrong. It was the first time in all my years in racing that I've seen something like this happen to us.
