I've previously accused the 109th Congress of being lazy for doing things like working fewer days than any other Congress in history, failing to pass mandatory appropriations bills, and whining when told that the 110th Congress will be expected to work a five day week. Well, maybe I was wrong:
Despite criticism for adjourning last week without acting on several major legislative initiatives, members of Congress can boast significant achievements in at least one area of federal lawmaking -- naming post offices.
Of the 383 pieces of legislation that were signed into law during the two-year 109th Congress, more than one-quarter dealt with naming or renaming federal buildings and structures -- primarily post offices -- after various Americans.
Please accept my apologies, 109th.
