WP: Redskins' Torrence Seizes The Play
Leigh Torrence's unpaid congressional internship was like thousands of others in this city of unpaid interns. He sorted mail for Rep. Sanford D. Bishop Jr. (D-Ga.). He responded to constituents. He researched memos. He sat in a closet-size room jammed with two desks and miscellaneous supplies, a room other Bishop staffers call "the intern hole." He answered the phones -- "Good afternoon, Congressman Bishop's office" -- dozens of times a day. He stocked drinks.
