The drapes, installed in 2002 at a cost of $8,000, allowed then-Attorney General John Ashcroft to speak in the Great Hall without fear of a breast showing up behind him in television or newspaper pictures.
This had to be one of the most stoopid, ridiculous wastes of tax-payer money we've come across. What, Ashcroft couldn't speak in the Great Hall in such a way that the *breast* wouldn't be in the shot? The mics aren't mobile, the cameras are stationary??

Let me think on this a few minutes. The government has really had some mindless moments. Not saying this is not one of them.

(Hey Ted, 3 strikes and you may be out, but not if President Bush is calling the strikes!)
The cameras are mobile. The photographers worked so that they could get Ashcroft and the breasts in the same shot. It was a game.
