A terrific piece about the dynamics and personalities of the U.S. Congress in this week’s New York Times magazine, as seen primarily through the eyes of new Representatives Abigail Spanberger and Ayanna Pressley.  Individual Congresspeople are often enormously impressive and admirable, genuinely striving to do good work, even as service within the institution as a whole seems like an increasingly miserable experience.  The article does a remarkable job of capturing these cross-currents.  Really a must-read for anyone who wants to understand the present moment in our politics.  (Full disclosure: the article’s author, Susan Dominus, is a good friend.  Not that I am biased or anything.)
