The other thing I learned is that Senator Rand Paul's recent 13-hour filibuster got Obama to agree that killing Americans on American soil with remote control missiles, a.k.a. drones, something that actually happened in the not-too-distant past, is not nice and he won't do it anymore. That is a great relief, and makes me think perhaps I have judged the president too harshly; maybe he's not so bad after all. Still, it's a shame about the bathrooms. Having been to Yellowstone several times, I remember they came in quite handy on those long hikes.
