    I always thought the filibuster violated the principle of equal protection.  Why does some senator from Oklahoma have more power than my senator?  I'm quite upset about the power of committee chairs, which have the same problem.

    I was reading the other day about how some other governments are set up, and in the Scottish parliament, the committee chairs are required to run the committees in a non-partisan way.  They're just supposed to keep things moving, not dictate the agenda.  

    I'm still mad about Nixon.
