Thats The Real Gandhigiri

Glenn Goodlove said he was likely smooching with a girl in the expansive back seat of a 1946 Hudson when his wallet slipped from his pants pocket more than five decades ago. The year was 1952.

Goodlove was a sailor home on leave from the U.S. Navy. The Hudson belonged to his grandfather, who lived in Western Washington.

'We don't need to conquer new territory to win back the majority,' says new NRCC Chairman Tom Cole. 'We need to reclaim lost territory, which is easier.' (Lucian Perkins -- The Washington Post)

He'd long since forgotten about the lost leather billfold, until last month when he got a phone call from a pair of southern Idaho car collectors who told him they'd found the wallet. Inside were a $10 bill, a $1 silver certificate, military identification, Social Security card and a handwritten Washington state driver's license.

"If it was in my sailor-mentality years, I might have attempted to, as they said in those years, 'make out,'" Goodlove, who now lives in California, told the Twin Falls Times-News, on why the wallet went missing.

Earlier this year, Jon Beck, 61, and Chuck Merrill, 72, both from Twin Falls, took out an ad in the local newspaper looking for a classic car to restore. They were offered the Hudson by a man in nearby Oakley, and in April went to retrieve the car, which had changed hands since it belonged to Goodlove's family and wound up in a dilapidated state in southeastern Idaho.
