You may remember the tale of Nashvillian Molly Secours, a filmmaker, writer and activist who wound up in the crosshairs of the two biggest issues of the last year--health care reform and the foreclosure fiasco--when she found herself simultaneously battling uterine cancer and fighting to refinance her house so she wouldn't lose it to the bank. In July, Secours headed to Washington to join Nancy Pelosi at a Capitol Hill press conference that was broadcast on CNN. This week, she headed back to our nation's capital to have a breakfast meeting with our representatives. In film review parlance, we don't want to dish out any spoilers here, so we'll let you guess: Who of the following brushed her off, and who listened thoughtfully and respectfully?
1. Sen. Bob Corker 2. Sen. Lamar Alexander 3. Congressman Jim Cooper
The answers--along with a blow-by-blow account of what is known on Capitol Hill as "Tennessee Tuesday"--can be found here.
