Five years ago when I started this blog it was with the conviction that the American political system is broken.  I am more convinced of this than ever and heartened that more Americans every day are finally understanding the degree which our government has become disfunctional.  I recommend highly an excellent piece in the July/August Atlantic Magazine by former Congressman Micky Edwards entitled How to Turn Republicans and Democrats Into Americans.

It contains some excellent ideas for reforming the system.  If we want to see a government that works again, it is time Americans take reform of the system seriously.  Mr. Edwards provides us with some excellent ideas.
