Lecture: "Dangerous Convictions, What's Really Wrong with the US Congress"

Try not to do political stuff with the group but, according to polls of Congress's approval ratings, most people are dis-satisfied no matter if they are conservative or liberal.  There is a lecture coming to the Carter Library from a former congressman that looks interesting and discusses the inner-workings (or not) on Capitol Hill:

In Dangerous Convictions, former Democratic Congressman Tom Allen, explains how beneath the surface of our political debates, the incompatible world views of the two parties have turned Congress into a dysfunctional body. "Years of listening to what seemed to me to be preposterous arguments in committee, on the House floor, or in private conversations," he writes, "changed my mind about our capacity to find bipartisan agreement on the most fundamental topics."

Hope to see you there.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
