Back to the real world

E.J. Dionne at Commonweal online: "Every member of Congress who got us into this debt-ceiling fight should be docked six months pay. They wasted our time on political posturing instead of solving problems. Better yet, the voters might ponder firing them next year. This could do wonders for national productivity."Including some Democrats!

Margaret O'Brien Steinfels, a former editor of Commonweal, writes frequently in these pages.
