Games Our Minds Play
This is just crazy!
Yesterday morning I was reading about Mrs. Clarence Thomas and Liberty Central, her new political-action group. As a former employee of the federal government, I remembered that we employees had certain restrictions on our political activity. (Not that this has anything to do with Mrs. Thomas, mind you. I'm just saying.) I asked my soon-to-retire husband the name of the act that limited our politicking.
He couldn't remember.
Then the strangest thing happened.
The mental image of a guy I knew at work floated into my mind, but I couldn't remember his name either!
Just then, my husband hit on the answer. "The Hatch Act!"
Yep. My mental image was that of a guy named David Hatch. I ask you: why must our brains play hide-n-seek like this?
