Not-really-naked man causes havoc on Hill

Ah, if only this had happened two weeks ago I’d have had something worthwhile to talk about during the last week of my Congress course.

þ (via email): My former student Jim Swift, who now works on the south side of the Capitol.

When I was an undergrad, we contrived a “naked powers of government” tour. On one of our many tipsy forays into DC, we dropped trou on the steps of the Capitol and the steps of the Supreme Court. I was the only one who was going to do it in front of the White House, but my compatriots began pointing out armed secret service agents and convinced me that (a) I would be caught and (b) pantsless was no way to be taken to jail.

We did a naked Smithsonian and naked Abe Lincoln instead.

This was 1989-ish….if this happened today….said pantsless heroes would likely be shot


I suppose you haven’t truly lived until you’ve streaked the Washington Monument.

That would probably make most guys feel inadequate, though.
