Wow. Sense of the Senate on Israel/Palestine, making July "National Teen Safe Driver Month", August "National Medicine Abuse Awareness Month" and November "National Homeless Youth Awareness Month", congratulating a lacrosse team (obviously not Duke), a women's crew team and a men's cross country team, honoring Wm. Clifton France, expressing the sense of the Senate that history should be regarded as a means for understanding the past and solving the challenges of the future (nah, really?), and finally, actually doing a little work, by making minority party appointments for the Select Committee on Ethics for the 110th Congress. Select Committee on Ethics ... you mean they're just now appointing its members? That's been a priority, hasn't it?

The good news, I don't think any of that cost us any money ... yet. Now if I were Gen. Peter Pace, I'd look at that and then at Harry Reid and I'd have to struggle to keep a straight face while complementing Mr. Reid how competently he was doing the people's business this week. And I'd also have to wonder if he really planned on accepting his paycheck for managing all of that in 5 whole days.

Were I a senator, I would vote against every such billy simply because it is a complete waste of time.

The Nation is in better shape with congress passing this kind of bill. It’s cheaper naming buildings, than building them. As long as congress is working on this "worthy" agenda, they are doing no harm. That is the best we can hope for.
