"7 Republicans Named to Panel Investigating Attack in Benghazi"

Democrats are trying to decide whether to participate in this Republican attempt to prolong their manufactured  Benghazi "scandal".
Since they failed to obtain equality on the panel, I think that they should name just one or two Democrats to the Panel in order to keep track of the Panel activities.

"High court upholds legislative prayer at council meetings

The decision tosses a lower-court ruling that Christian invocations in Greece, N.Y., are unconstitutional"
Borowitz news:

In Landmark Decision, Supreme Court Strikes Down Main Reason Country Was Started

Religious freedom should include freedom from religion. Note the language of the first amendment

First Amendment:  "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;  ...."

The amendment doesn't say establishment of  "a religion"; it says establishment of "religion". I don't know what the Court has decided over the years on this point, but I believe that prayer or other religious indicia, no matter how ecumenical, is wrong.
