Bienvenidos a la 110th Congress!

Like the title says we're glad the Congress is continuing its venerable tradition of taking place, and we hope they'll keep it up for many years to come.

Partisan politics are a funny thing. A lot of us spend a lot of time decrying how partisanship takes away from the real business of running the country. But a lot of the bickering comes out of disagreements on how the country ought to be run. We want bickering, but we also like to complain about it. That could be a useful state of affairs. But if we were to decide its not, one way to make the situation better would be for more people to get involved in governance. Then we'd figure out how to tell the difference between useful argument and ugly. If a person doesn't like how politics work, she should do it herself. Obviously, there are quite a few politicians out there that could use the help.

With love,
Speeker.
