Government Must Continue
by

Norm Ornstein has a crucially important column in today’s Washington Post about the failure of Congress to provide for continuity of the federal government in case of nuclear strike or other catastrophe that kills large numbers of government employees. It is a must read. Ornstein is right on target. The fact is that the Constitution has a hole in it in this regard. Congress, led (or not led, as the case may be) by the execrable Dennis Hastert during the time when Ornstein first issued his report, was then and continues to be wholly irresponsible on this matter. Do read the column. And do wonder why our legislators are so unable to do serious work in a serious manner. I’ve written on this many times in the past, and it’s not too difficult a subject to understand or handle. Congress should first be ashamed at its failure so far, and then it should dust off the Ornstein commission’s recommendations and get to work at implementing them.
