David Broder has an ode to governors this morning, which includes this tidbit:
Back when governors took themselves less seriously than they do now, they put the whole conference aboard the S.S. Independence in 1967 and sailed it from New York to the Virgin Islands and back. In 1975, when Louisiana's Edwin Edwards hosted the conference in New Orleans, the oil and gas industry, on the last night, loaded up several fake paddle-wheel steamboats with more clams and oysters and booze than I've ever seen -- and people got seriously wasted.
