The Braindead Megaphone in Congress
George Saunders wrote an essay called “The Braindead Megaphone” in which he describes how media is making us stupid. Sadly, I would add that many of our elected officials are doing the same.

For today’s installment, we have US Congresswoman Sheila Jackson (Dem.) of Texas’ 18th District.
