Rosetta Stone

Filibusters have become increasingly common (and therefore cloture votes as well), and this is usually ascribed to growing political polarization. But a simpler explanation is that because the Senate is busier than it used to be, the announcement of a filibuster is generally enough to impel a cloture vote—the majority doesn’t want to take the time to try to wear out the filibusterers. If there are enough votes for cloture, the filibuster never takes place; if there aren’t enough votes, the majority gives up and abandons the bill that was to be filibustered. Hence the cost of filibustering has plummeted.

God, that is awful! I am so sorry for what you're going through. I have a full time job with partially paid health insurance and a house, but am in a great deal of debt. What a country we're living in these days, damn disgrace.

Wow, thanks for the great stories. It seems like everyone has an anecdote about the skating rink universe.

Wow. Great piece. Not sure if you are trying to make a statement about guns or not. Either way, what a sad tragedy.

What a great story! Do you think things would have turned out differently if he had been armed or not?

It reminded me that, several years ago at a garage sale, I ran into my best friend from my childhood, who I hadn't seen since high school. Conversation was awkward - I got the sense that he'd gone through tough times - and I haven't seen him since. It's amazing how much people change as they go their separate ways.
