Guess what we did in the Senate yesterday?!

I love to visit Thomas, the government's website and internet record of what is going on in the House and Senate. Well, maybe I don't really LOVE to visit the site and perhaps recently it has made me a bit sick to my stomach, but like a gawker looking at an accident on the side of the road, I find myself drawn to Thomas like a moth to a flame.

With that in mind, there is a place on the site where one can click to see a summary of what happened the day before. I went there today and found the following bit of information about an important legislative act that was adopted on Monday October 19, 2009......S.Res.314 was passed on Monday by unanimous consent in the senate!!!

S.Res.314 designated the week of October 18, 2009 as "National Character Counts Week". This resolution was sponsored by none other than Senator Christopher J. Dodd of Connecticut....a Senator who exemplifies the highest of moral character. Senator Dodd was the sponsor and there were a paltry 15 co-sponsors to the resolution. I find it strange that all 100 senators weren't pig piling on to get their names associated with good character!! Or perhaps the 84 that did not co-sponsor this resolution were the honest men and women who knew that they didn't have the character they needed to be a valid co-sponsor.
