Atlantic - Naval Massa Had Keen Interest in Main Masts and Poop Decks, Too

Other than commenting on how politically incompetent it was for Democrats to force him out at a time they did in the Health care debate, I've pretty much avoided the story of (former) Congressman Eric Massa, the Democrat apparently run out of office in a gay sexual harassment scandal involving his own aides.

It now appears that Massa's interest in his fellow man goes back at least to his Navy days, when he was repeatedly rebuffed by junior officers for his attempts to play hide the torpedo with them.

Massa's bombastic, self-serving (and entirely amusing) excuses for his forced retirement means the end of the House ethics complaint against him. I sincerely hope that other investigations into his behavior are forthcoming to make sure his is not a predator.
