Sen. Larry Craig on fame

At tonight’s Idaho’s Hall of Fame induction ceremony (read my full story here), at which scandal-plagued Idaho Sen. Larry Craig was among the dozen inductees, MC David Leroy did lots of musing about the nature of fame. He offered quotes on the subject from everyone from Jean-Jacques Rousseau to Davy Crockett to Truman Capote to Brad Pitt. From Rousseau: “Fame is but the breath of the people and that is unwholesome.” From Brad Pitt: “Fame is a bitch, man.”

When Craig stepped up to the podium to accept his plaque, he said, “My fame of the last month I think I would liken to the definition Brad Pitt gave it.”
