    Gifford is what public servants should strive to become. She is one of my very few heroes.

    I agree. Plugging this, that, or the other hole in the dike when the flood is coming over the top and undermining the base is the height of silliness. Full employment for lawyers, no effect on the availability or use of drugs.

    The courage of this woman is overwhelming. She could be home spending all of her energies on her recovery, but instead comes to Washington, as a former member of Congress, to see a piece of legislation that she thought was important signed into law. May all of our politicians take this leeson in selflessness to heart.
