Earlier tonight in the House General Laws Sub-Committee on Housing, meeting in the newly-renovated-for-$100-million-plus capitol, in Senate Room 2, where the heat was high enough to melt Iceland (so much for Governor Kaine's "green" initiative):

Committe member Delegate Bill Fralin (R-17, Roanoke): "My microphone doesn't work."

Fellow member Delegate Bill Carrico (R-5, Independence): "There's a reason for that."
