Small mistake on the filibuster item. 60 senators are needed to break a filibuster, not to start one. It effectively gives you control of the Senate. Sorry, rookie mistake. Also, I had an error on the name of Tom Foley - fixed.

Several people figured out an anachronism. The phrase 'bucket list' wasn't in use at the time. Not a problem! Carl invents the term! Go back and read that section again. I added to it.

Some of the more interesting things I have found are in the emails I get from overseas readers. Many of them find our system of government as screwy as we find it. I have gotten several emails asking, "Is it really like that?" My usual response is, "No, not really. It's usually worse!"
