Congress At Work....

You know, as long as we keep them out of economic, foriegn policy and health care issues, the Democrats do good work. Case in point, three Congressmen's* new proposed bill to more clearly delinate the rules for border laptop searches. The current rules of "at the border guard's discreation" are overly broad and the competing bill would merely take statistics on the situation and not actually provide the guidance it sounds like the Travelers Privacy Protection Act would.

After last night's single most boring debate ever and last week's disastrous posturing by Congress, it's nice to know our elected officials aren't totally useless.

* technically, it's Congresspeople b/c one is a woman but I think Congresspeople sounds incredibly lame and refuse to use it.
