    I didn't know a lot about either Boggs, though I knew their names, so thanks for the history.

    I think the balancing act goes in both directions: Remember that your opponents are human, as you describe Lindy Boggs doing, but also to remember that those humans can come up with horrific programs. I think that the DC culture leads people to  lose sight of the devastation that will be caused by that nice guy they had cocktails with on Tuesday and dinner with on Thursday. More ability to be nice in person, coupled with more ability to see evil programs where they exist and call them out, would be a great improvement.

    And I love your use of "comity" :)
