You know, Rules Committee can be really boring. Sometimes, when I am watching it, I wish that someone would call me so I could talk to them instead of listening to the meeting. So I can sympathize with why Larry Reid would want to keep wearing his bluetooth earpiece the whole time. I am sure any number of people could call him and what they had to say would be about a million times more interesting than whatever is going at City Hall.
But it is, like, you know, his job and everything to sit there and listen. And the meeting really is not that long. Keeping that thing on the whole time really does just seem kind of rude.
