Like everything in America, the Congressional Page program was a hell of a lot more fun in the old days. According to Ron Kessler's book "Inside Congress," before the lame era of Instant Messages and "What are you wearing?" come-ons, pages did what kids are supposed to do: raise hell, get high, swim naked and have sex with each other.

"They left their blinds open, and undressed," said Wayne Beckett, another former Capitol Police officer. "The officers watched. They [the female pages] were teases. They knew what they were doing. We would shine flashlights at them, and they would leave the blinds open ... They totally undressed and pranced around."
