The new 111th Congress is underway.  It officially came in at noon EST today, January 3, 2009.  The first meeting will take place on Tuesday, January 6, 2009 with the swearing-in of the new Congress.

My earlier comment notwithstanding, I do think that the site would be better off if Inks left his position. (The fact that the village idiot has dropped in to express his support for him only confirms this.)

So does the 111th currently just include the 66 or so members who don't need to be re-sworn in?

I don't think they can do anything until the MN seat is resolved.

Why would only 66 members not need to be re-sworn in?

Why do so many people here cheer on war crimes?
Israel and the United States "killing dozens of civilians with explosives", as you phrase it, has, throughout history, almost always been a good thing.

Who currently holds the MN Senate seats? Klobuchar and Coleman?

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

Coleman's term expired the 3rd so the seat is currently vacant, I believe.
