Searching for Larry Craig's Smoking Gun (Piece of Toilet Paper) May Take More Than A New Toyota Tundra With Navigation System
In the quest to cover stories of interest, Legal Pub's journey sometimes take us coast to coast in search of facts and opinions. Fortunately, sometimes information can be obtained fr0m a local trip to libraries or computer data bases. This takes time and sometimes it takes reliable transportation. For example, now that Larry Craig is seeking to withdraw his guilty plea, fellow Republicans and news people are now diligently scrambling to discover the "piece of toilet paper" that Craig was allegedly trying to pick up when he was busted in the bathroom sex sting. Craig now says he may not resign if he can withdraw his guilty plea. The ethics committee is continuing to investigate the complaint against Craig. While Legal Pub may not find the "infamous piece of toilet paper" this author now has reliable personal transportation and a navigation device to help with the search.
Thanks to contributors like Surfer Dude, Ms. Calabaza, Colleency, didyoustoptothink (Ian Coburn), L.S., Ralph, Ron, Blond Bombshell, Iron Mike, Secret L.A. Reader and hundreds of emails, the information keeps pouring in for the benefit of our readers. A similar contribution was made possible by Bruce Andree of O'Brian Motors in Urbana, Illinois. Thanks to Bruce, Legal Pub had the opportunity of reviewing the new Toyota Tundra Crew Cab Limited. The full size truck was equipped with a navigation system and back up camera. The navigation system is excellent in helping find almost any location (but still no luck in locating the piece of toilet paper Senator Craig was bending down to pick up when he put his hand under officer Karsnia's bathroom stall.) Court houses, liabraries and even air port bathrooms show up in the navigation system but the toilet paper did not!
The back up camera is wonderful and truly promotes safety. Suppose scantily clad Tiger Time Lawn care mowers are performing duties in their bikinis in your yard. What a great way to keep them in focus while backing up without getting slapped by your significant other. After driving the truck, the decision to buy one was a no brainer. Literally, even a pro wrestler whose pathology reports come back showing as much post concussion brain damage as Chris Benoit would recognize this truck as the top dog in it's class. Curtain side air bags, stability control, back up camera and hands free cell phone operation all make driving a little bit safer. While the process began with researching the truck for purposes of a review, Bruce Andree and Jim Turner of O'Brian Motors gave me such a great deal purchase of the truck was inevitable.
If you are ever in the midwest and are interested in a vehicle, ask for Bruce Andree. Mention Legal Pub and I am confident that he will do you right.
