Gavel to Gavel Television covers House floor sessions. During floor sessions, there are frequently (perhaps five to ten) "at eases" called by legislators to get questions answered, to get additional information, or sometimes to huddle with legislators of like mind.

During these "at eases," the Gavel to Gavel television audio from the House floor is turned off. The Gavel to Gavel audience gets the television broadcast of the legislators wandering around, but the sound is replaced by music.

During an "at ease" yesterday, one of my colleague's constituents phoned in and wanted to know what music was being played. The answer (are you ready?) was the theme from "The Titanic."

Inquiring minds want to know. Is there a message here about our legislature?

Dear Mr. Lynn, thank you for your blogging efforts. It has been a real pleasure to visit your blog (well, other then the rural heating Chavez thingy).
However, you are a treasure to your constituents as you are so forthright and honest. I wish we had more good people like you in Juneau.
I wish you and yours a wonderful summer.

Looks like your pro-National ID Card bill (HB3) hit an iceberg, Bob. Better luck in 2008 pushing this police state nonsense.
