Has anyone here met a politician and been very impressed by him/her?

I've met quite a few and the only ones that I've found interesting were Benjamin Netanyahu and the late Sen. Daniel Inouye. Corey Booker was pretty cool as well. Most of the other either seemed stupid or were really boring

The project was on the state of Nebraska.

That must have been pretty exciting. Corn and the Cornhuskers

This won't be appreciated by the younger crowd but at least HelpMe will get a laugh. In the early 80's my grandfather was at a movie premier and waited in line tongetbin first. When he entered the theater he screamed out to his kids let's go sit behind that short guy who was already in the theater. He freaked out when he sat down and the Fonz turned around.
Ages ago when I was working on 57th Street in Manhatten the Fonz was filming downstairs. Our secretary got to talking with him and there was no way to get another stitch of work out of her for the rest of the day.

No, it does not count as a minyan.

Kiefer Sutherland AKA Jack Bauer 8) on a UAL Flight from LA to NY (on a DD price mistake)

A little late to the game here... you should have told him that the readers of DD forums watch all 8 seasons of 24 on Tisha B'av. (and prob downloaded illegally).  ;D
