I’m being my usual night-owl self and watching the proceedings of the House Judiciary Subcommittee. They’re discussing parts of the 9-11 Commission Report, as well as aspects of the PATRIOT act. They even had an important ACLU person testifying.
I am convinced that everyone in this country needs to watch C-SPAN at least once a week. You can see John Ashcroft being evil, for example, as he declares that the Geneva Convention does not apply to terrorists. At the very least you can see your representatives doing their job.
If more people saw government in action, they might think more before voting along party lines.
