When I was a wee lass, I can remember my grandmother having trouble with her Social Security. I don't know any of the details, but I remember is was a big deal and I also remember that Lee Hamilton was somehow involved. I remember being at a parade that I believe went through Brownstown and this guy in a white shirt and tie came over to where we were. My grandmother introduced him. "This is Lee Hamilton; he's a great man." I'm not making this up. She had us shake his hands. I've never forgotten it.
On the way to work this week, I heard the following Morning Edition interview with Lee Hamilton.
