                          PERSONAL EXPLANATION

  Mr. FARR. Madam Speaker, I ask unanimous consent to speak out of 
order for one minute. This morning I had the privilege of attending the 
funeral ceremony for Col. Dan Devlin and his wife Darlene. They were 
interred at Arlington National Cemetery with full honors. Col. Devlin 
had served as Commandant at the Defense Language Institute in Monterey 
in my district.
  However, while I was at the funeral I missed four votes. Had I been 
here I would have voted in this way: ``Yes'' on H.R. 1514, the Juvenile 
Accountability Block Grant Program Reauthorization; ``yes'' on H.R. 
5325, the America COMPETES Reauthorization; ``yes'' on H. Res. 1325, 
Recognizing National Missing Childrens Day; and ``yes'' on H. Res. 
1362, to commend the life of Lena Horne.
