Bomb throwers

    • Below is a list of members of the Freedom Caucus of the United States House of Representatives, the members allegedly responsible for John Boehner’s resignation as Speaker of the House. NYT columnist David Brooks piece this morning puts their role in perspective, the best I have seen. Brooks points out that democracy requires basic agreement to the principle of majority rule, a principle not in the Freedom Caucus’s playbook.
    • None of the news stories mentions who these bomb-throwing, Russian-style anarchists are. Note that Arizona is home to four members, which will surprise no one. The list is from Wiki.
