Franken told reporters Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid also told him he will serve on the Senate Committee of Health, Education, Labor and Pensions, the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs, and the Senate Special Committee on Aging.

    If you can prop Senator Byrd up with a stick, you'll have a fillibuster proof majority.
