Hotter heads prevailed

In the LA Times there is an opinion piece published April, 9 2006

“FRIDAY AFTERNOON ON CAPITOL HILL, the world's greatest deliberative body got back to doing what it does best. One senator took to the floor to wax eloquent about a new biomedical building at his state's public university. Another successfully moved the Soda Ash Royalty Reduction Act from committee. And the most senior senator, Robert C. Byrd (D-W.Va.), delivered a peroration about Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

The Senate had time to weigh in on such weightless subjects because on Friday morning it had failed to deliver what Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) had promised: passage of an immigration reform bill before the chamber's two-week Easter recess”.
