Aisle Seats Available?

It's fun to mock Congress when it behaves in a silly manner, but a serious Congress is worthy of awe.

I rarely wish I could have watched something on CSPAN, but I wish I'd Tivo'd this Congressional discussion. The House has passed a bill that would allow for special elections in the event that 100 or more of its members were to die in an attack.

With this bill, affected districts would need to hold elections within 45 days of the catastrophe. Without it, we'd be without a complete Congress for nearly a year.

I expect little by way of inspirational comments from Congresspeople, so it's refreshing to read their selfless quotes in the article.
