The Saturday papers

Not much is better than a Burgerville turkey burger (hold the mayo) and the Saturday New York Times. (You'll have to register to follow the Times links, but it's painless.) Today we learn that the recent federal campaign reform legislation was a lot of hot air -- now the soft money will simply flow to the state parties, rather than the national parties. Another fine piece of legislation out of our Congress.

Back on the op-ed page, columnist Bill Keller holds up a harsh spotlight to the root causes of the weakness in our federal legislature. He names names -- the worst six members of Congress (4 GOP, 2 Dem; 4 House, 2 Senate) currently up for re-election. Those "whose defeat would make Capitol Hill a more civilized and productive place." I'm with you, Bill!
