I was watching Congress today when the Senate was suddenly interrupted. Later, the House was interrupted, too. As of this writing, both are officially still in recess. The long day they had planned is still pending and potentially in its early stages.

I had a cable guy coming today. What I had believed was an installation option turned out not to be the case, and he left before I felt reconciled to my more limited options.

Hard interruptions are no fun. They're disorienting.

We saw this last year.

In America, what generally was once a healthy toleration of noise, debate and soft interruption has gone too far.

There are several ways in which things could change going forward. It's not entirely clear which will hold, but it seems today marks a milestone which will make for an easy before and after marker in the future.
