A man with backbone

Three days in jail over a dollar! My hat's off to Thomas Jensen, who at age 68 still hasn't learned to pick his battles. He is right, of course. No business, not even New Hampshire's toll authority, should be able to renounce its debts this way.

He didn't even tell his wife about it.

"Hon, about that fishing trip to New Hampshire. Turns out I was the new fish."

The Democrats in Washington ought to take a lesson from Jensen about standing on principle. They actually do have important battles to fight.
