Monday evening briefing and open thread

It’s Monday night, and I’m watching The Ed Show for the first time ever. Tonight he’s showing the long voting lines in Ohio and it just makes the blood boil. Someday America will look back on these election shenanigans with great embarrassment.

In 1952, the prize for medicine was awarded for the discovery of the first antibiotic produced in the U.S. — streptomycin.

Contact your Congressman NOW and tell him or her that we the people expect Congress to work with the President to solve the problems of this nation. We will no longer tolerate Obstructionist Politics!
