The day of reckoning – the testimony delivered. I watched the live webcast and was astonished at how they have improved in the last few years. I have never before listened to a congressional hearing, and was slightly impressed that these Representatives were so (relatively speaking) up on what the issues are. Most of the questions (when they were actually questions, not self-serving blather) were reasonably on-target, even if they served to advance the pet cause of the rep. I hope that this interest in the topic means that there will be more work in the near and extended future.
