This almost seems like a joke, but according a short story in The Hill, the paper about and for Congress, a Rep. Lacy Clay (D-Mo.) who got his top braces off last month and promptly lost his retainer, is trying to get a House resolution passed to declare February “Orthodontist Month”!

I’m happy with my orthodontist and my braces treatment and my better bite, but don’t Congressmen have more important things to do with their time?
