    An Example of the Representation we have in Congress:

    <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p>A noted psychiatrist was a guest speaker at an academic function where Nancy Pelosi happened to appear. Ms Pelosi took the opportunity to schmooze the good doctor a bit and asked him a question with which he was most at ease.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    'Would you mind telling me, Doctor,' she asked, 'how do you detect a mental deficiency in somebody who appears completely normal?'<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    'Nothing is easier,' he replied. 'You ask a simple question which anyone should answer with no trouble. If the person hesitates, that puts you on the track.'<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    'What sort of question?' asked Pelosi.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Well, you might ask, 'Captain Cook made three trips around the world and died during one of them. Which one?''<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Pelosi thought a moment, and then said with a nervous laugh, 'You wouldn't happen to have another example would you? I must confess I don't know much about history.'
