I am sure cleanliness should be encouraged In everyone. It is a fine reflection on this country when its Senators go around all day long with their faces bright and shiny and their ears clean. But they seem to be going overboard on it. I mean ty are keeping too clean for the iod of the budget. M After all, 5814 towels is a lot of burlap.
