Uncle Dave does Facebook, “the movie,” in today’s column in the NYTimes. Read what columnnist David Brooks writes about the web phenomemon in his op-ed piece, and buy the NYT if you appreciate the writing.

PS: Economist Paul Krugman today is so dejected that I don’t want to link to his NYT column about the NJ tunnel being cancelled. With about three weeks to go until the mid-term federal election, the media narrative about what is expected to happen seems detached from reality and the facts as I understand them. That the national Republicans would be rewarded with votes after the way they have performed in the past two years and previous eight years seems staggeringly bizarre to me.

    If you had said Senate Republicans I would have some empathy, but House Republicans are in the minority and the Speaker of the House is all powerful.  The House dances to her fiddle.

    The House has been active these past few years, under Madame Speakers leadership. But all good lege goes to the Senate to die. Or get watered down under the thumbscrews of lobbyists and big money donors.

    This curse is not the sole domain of the GOP.

    It’s time to kill the filibuster, as we know it.
