We live in remarkable times! Despite everything that's wrong, there are still wonders of the age that we have before us every day. For example, C-Span, that indispensable engine of public service (even if you discount the b.s. that spews out of politicians about 90 percent of the time), has recently made its entire video library, which goes back to 1987, available on the Internet. That's 23 years of political history, over 160,000 hours. All the presidential press conferences, Congressional sessions, even Book TV. Here's the New York Times story about it.
