    @TEMPLO S.U.D.

    TSA: the folks who search you and your luggage at the airport.

    Hey Delta — Condoleezza Rice called. She says, “you go girl!”

    Delta is too intelligent and honest to be a politician. Successful business people are often intelligent and honest, with some glaring exceptions. Politicians are just idiots who would drag their own mother through sewage to earn votes

    The TSA? Isn’t that the department for feeling UP the people?

    Looks like Delta would be afraid to let go of the reins for even a day. So a relationship doesn’t appear likely – unless someone shows up who really has her number. We can only hope.

    Actually, we have a surprising number of honest politicians. The catch is: they don’t make the news. Look at Greg Walden. #3 man in the house, but do you ever see him make the news? He does his job without fuss.
    .
    Admittedly, out politico corps is not doing well today. The average Democrat in House and Senate is a law school graduate who went immediately into politics. A few in the Republican side, too. In other words, no real experience. It didn’t used to be that way. When you look at Congress 30 years ago, the men and women there had actually done things with their lives before going into politics. Doctors, generals, CEOs, engineers, chemists, biologists, you name it. They brought that experience to Congress.
    .
    I suppose going from laws of 10 or 20 pages in most of our nation’s history to monstrosities like the 45,000 page NAFTA is symptomatic of that. It’s an eye opener when you go to a college with a Federal depository and look at the Congressional Record. It goes from being very thin to multiple volumes for single laws, starting in 1993.
    .
    When I was taking resource law in college, laws like ESA, NEPA, CWA, CAA and so on were not many pages. Today? Ha.

    I find Delta’s attitude simply sad. I mean I admire her that she has plans and intends to stay focused on them. But to basically not even factor a/any relationship into the mix?!? That’s a fast ticket to loneliness.

    I said that Delta definitely has a personality. This emerging side is something I’m not sure I like. She’s going to regret sacrificing relationships for ambitions in any case. Most people, if they’re not applying for world dictator or something equivalent, eventually do.

    Yesterday’s quip by Delta: a classic case of suppressing her value judgment, which (if she’s as much of a theorist by temperament as I now suspect) is hard enough for her to access anyway.

    Greg’s already done a story about Luann stealing a guy Delta was interested in and I don’t think he has the guts to have her come out despite her denial. This storyline is probably a way to write Delta out of the strip due to creative having nothing for her.

    Aside from the fact that congressional bills are long because they cover a large and diverse number of topics, the length of bills has grown as the use of procedural blocking tactics has increased. Splitting legislation into smaller bills just gives the opposition more time to gum up the legislative calendar. If you really can’t comprehend the language of a bill , there’s something called a “chairman’s mark”, which is a draft by the chairman of the measure, generally about 200 pages long. But to complain about the length of any law in itself is a meaningless argument – and since you’re clearly wrong in your statement that Congress is now filled with “career politicians” where it never was before, your point is – what?
    .
    NAFTA, BTW, is a treaty, not a law. Since it involved other two countries in our continent, it was necessarily complex and thorough – it’s the first agreement that addresses intellectual property rights, as well as copyright ownership of computer programs, which isn’t something that was even thought of 50 years ago. You also didn;t mention that it’s double-spaced, in large text and deeply indented – that’s done deliberately so it can be easily marked with corrections or additions.
    .
    Like it or not, legislative language is arcane – it’s not as brief or concise as “plain English” statutes found in many states. That doesn’t have anything to do with whether we have career politicians or not since the language of legislation has always read that way. And argument for greater transparency might be valid – but complaining about length in and of itself really isn’t.
