Political Theater Compliments of the Dust Bowl

At least the last responders in the Capitol finally came through and passed the Zadroga bill, providing help to the 9/11 first responders, help that should have been there as automatically as our cops and firefighters respond to 911 calls. One senator, Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, made rumblings about living up to his nickname, "Dr. No," and single-handedly blocking the bill. Coburn really is a doctor, an obstetrician who delivered 4,000 babies. His opera singer daughter, Sarah, often performs in New York. He has never encountered a military allocation too large for him to support.
