Senior House Dem trashes Senate’s bipartisan infrastructure talks

DeFazio’s frustrations were echoed by several other members on the call. One lawmaker, Rep. Salud Carbajal (D-Calif.) called the current process “bullshit,” and some vowed to work against the Senate’s bipartisan effort.

“I said the whole process seemed like [bullshit],” Carbajal told POLITICO in a brief interview afterward. “A lot of work has gone into this. There’s been a bipartisan effort to really align everything together, and you know it’s just very frustrating and disappointing when so much work goes into this … It is just annoying, to say the least.”

The comments reflect weeks of simmering tensions in the

Listening to Stone Beings – Architecture

In the mid-1980s, I was looking for a place to live and photograph. A place to lean into, to know in an intimate way. For years, I had been inspired by Henry David Thoreau’s journals. He had the ability to draw epiphanies out of the most seemingly ordinary observations, epiphanies that still resonate today. On a chance visit to the modest coastline of New Hampshire, I knew immediately I had found my Walden by the sea. It is not a dramatic coast in the way Maine can be, but its rough, raw, primal rocks meet the wide sweep of the

“We have what I call ‘camp rules.’ When one person goes to sleep, the other person goes to sleep. It’s lights-out,” said John Spangler, who started sharing his 425-square-foot Chelsea studio apartment with his boyfriend, Alejandro Mendez, during the pandemic. For many, perhaps even most people, sharing any living space with a partner over the past year and a half has been an unwelcome exercise in forced intimacy. But the most claustrophobic COVID-19 couples experience of all? Sharing a New York studio apartment, a single room where everything from

Democrat proposes boxing out Trump by limiting speaker to House members only

A House Democrat announced legislation that would deny former President Donald Trump the speaker’s gavel.

Rep. Brendan Boyle’s offering would “require that only elected Members or Delegates be eligible to serve as the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives.” As it stands now, the U.S. Constitution does not require the speaker of the House to be a member of Congress, though every speaker in U.S. history has been an elected member.

“The Speaker of the U.S. House is second in the United States presidential line of succession. That Donald Trump’s name would even be tossed around as a potential
