The way things were

I was gearing up for a rant this morning against Congress when I decided to check out the 1975 School House Rock episode on how a bill becomes a law. Wow, were we innocent then. Try not to laugh when you hear "Bill" say, "Some folks back home decided they wanted a law so they called their local congressman and he said, 'You're right. There ought to be a law.' And he sat down and he wrote me out and introduced me to Congress." K Street would challenge that assertion today.

My rant on Congressional lameness will follow shortly.
