Crawford ties one on 

U.S. Rep. Rick Crawford institutes "bow tie Tuesday" for his office.

U.S. Rep. Rick Crawford of Jonesboro got a little attention in The Hill newspaper for dandifying his office. Crawford has instituted a "bow tie Tuesday" at his office.

"Bow tie Tuesday is something different to break up the monotony of the day and give the office something to look forward to," Crawford told The Hill. "It's also a great conversation piece on the House floor." Women are joining by wearing bows in their hair. Crawford said he'd long been a fan of bow ties over long ties, telling The Hill,"You're less likely to get an errant splash of chili or marinara sauce on yourself."
