    So, members of congress can be pretty cool dudes.

    Nice heartwarming story. I pulled the affiliations off so we can concentrate on the good stuff.

    Why should only Drs help others?

    I think TM has the weird notion I am being critical of the good doctor. Or something. I think it was cool.

    Sorry, I can't resist: Phil Roe - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Roe is a Republican first elected in 2008 and a member of the Tea Party Caucus. Before practicing as an OB/GYN for 31 years he was in the Army Medical Corps.

    Roe's actions are highly commendable, and may well have saved a life. They are a reminder I think that even when Congress as an institution strikes us as incompetent and malign it is made up of people who are mostly kind and professional. Of course most members of Congress could not have performed as ably as Roe did here.
