A Basketball Lesson for Congress

Like many of you, I’m fed up with the US Congress, both Republicans and Democrats, for their unwillingness to compromise and move our country out of this epic mess. The endless posturing, blaming, and stonewalling are politics at its worst with disastrous implications.  It’s also an affront to the privilege of serving as our elected officials.

Their behavior has been compared to kindergartners’ but that’s actually an insult to the kids – who probably know better. Washington could learn a lesson from what transpired at this El Paso high school basketball game. Marcus Mitchell, the team manager of the Coronado Thunderbirds, Peter Morales their coach, and Franklin High School senior Jonathan Montanez, are an inspiration for their actions.
