11:30 am
in congress to override congressional rules and overcome republican opposition to parsons legislation. even joe biden last week, seem pretty doubtful that this would be passed under his watch after he some se, belatedly put the full force of the presidency behind the push to get voting rights legislation passed. ironically, if bitin does fail once again to get a major piece of legislation, possibly promised on the campaign trail, the democratic vote, the democratic, told out of the upcoming mid term elections may be depressed anyway. ah, morgan, i'm fully back to go with the headlines on al jazeera, a thick layer of ash on that one way of tongue is main airport is delaying international deliveries of 8. it's expected to take days to clear after sundays volcanic eruption and synonymy to death have been confirmed so far. the ashes proving quite probably.
