Grownups



Nice to know how things work in "The World's Greatest Deliberative Body."
Four senators may have signed on to a gun background check deal Wednesday, but only two showed up for the news conference — in part because Pennsylvania GOP Sen. Patrick J. Toomey’s public support for the bill hinged on not having to stand next to Democratic Sen. Charles E. Schumer of New York.

Congress worked a whole lot better in my grandfather's day when you got elected and you moved your family to DC so you would be socializing with other Congressmen's families on a regular basis. You didn't personally attack someone whose wife was your wife's best friend and whose kids play with your kids.

We were grandkids, not kids, but still got invited to the big party Johnson threw on the White House lawn. Pony rides! (That ferris wheel looked like a death trap to my 8-year-old eyes, nothin' doin', ain't going there.)

A little humanity together would go such a long way.
