I've had a thing about Grover for a while. I spoke with him years ago for an article for Washingtonian. As part of his Reagan Legacy Project, he was trying to bump the first Treasury Secretary, Alexander Hamilton, from the ten for you-know-who. An aircraft carrier seems appropriate for now. Still call the DC airport "National."

Newt as a Catholic---where to start? The whole genesis, excuse the expression, of his third marriage is a good place. He said he wanted to worship alongside his wife Callista, who is described as a "Devout Catholic" on their website. Let's add it up--their trysts would occur after Newt watched her sing with the choir at the National Shrine of the Basilica. He was running around on his second wife and Callista was already in a relationship with a member of Newt's staff. Yup, he'll fit in just fine. Or maybe I'm bitter because I gave up alcohol for Lent.
