A taste of home: Miss. congressman shipping shrimp to troops in Iraq
Link - U.S. Rep. Gene Taylor learns a thing or two each time he ships seafood to servicemen overseas. He learned last year that you can't leave shrimp unguarded in Baghdad. They will disappear. This trip, he learned not to leave home without packing tape. Taylor and Beaux Gex, his chief of staff for the district, hauled 1,000 pounds of shrimp from Biloxi to Pass Christian on Friday morning. They stacked the shrimp on a trailer Gex pulled behind a pickup truck.
