Good blog article about Eric Hovde

http://www.dailykos.com/story/2012/07/11/1107235/-Multimillionaire-trying-to-buy-Senate-seat-would-be-no-kind-of-citizen-legislator


excerpt:

Now, I did not know Mr. Hovde during my time at East and I am fairly certain he did not know me. Upon perusing the 1982 year book I noticed that Mr. Hovde has zero activities listed next to his photo. I have Hall Monitor and Air Band listed next to my name in the 1985 yearbook (Somehow football got left off of mine), not great things but at least I did something. Mr. Hovde ... well, evidently high school was a big bore to him.

He made little impression there. His senior yearbook photo has no list of activities next to it.

"I look back and say, 'Geez, I wish I'd gotten more involved,'" Hovde said. "The truth is, I found high school boring beyond boring."

1. You'd think he could buy a list of activities to be listed by his senior photo.

And make up some awards like "Most likely to be elected to the US Senate in 2012".
