    Barney Frank, our Ace in the Hole

    Sorry, I couldn't resist the pun, even though I usually hate poker puns. Truly though, he is. I wrote about the Massachusetts congressman recently--he's the guy who is trying to reverse the UIGEA. He doesn't play poker or gamble. Instead, he's against the UIGEA based on his views about personal freedom, summed up thusly:

    "If it affects me, mind your own business. If affects others, let the government get involved."

    Here's a great article on who he is and what he's trying to do. And if you've got a few extra bucks, donating to his campaign is probably a good idea.
