Naming Names

July 29, 2013

Back on June 28th, in a post called “Jocks Rule,” I told a story about an athlete in my high school who tried to intimidate me for refusing to stand for the football team at a pep assembly. It was a strange development for me that the guy was elected to congress during the last election. Since I had no way of knowing whether he’d changed or not—and I had some indication that he might have—I decided not to name names. But because he voted against a bill that would have reined in the NSA’s domestic spying, I’ve decided to reveal his identity: Denny Heck, Democrat from the state of Washington.
