There was a story in the news yesterday about a Texas State Senator who was conducting a one-woman filibuster against an abortion bill. While people can have different opinions about abortion, the part of the article that knocked my socks was this:
To be successful, Davis must talk for 13 hours, during which she will not be allowed to sit, lean or take any breaks to go to the bathroom or eat. She is only allowed to stop speaking when listening to questions.
Really? She can't even go to the bathroom?
Who came up with such a stupid rule?
Is that even healthy?
