After the Repubs exhaust themselves fighting over who should be speaker, the deal to be cut is quite straightforward: Dems identify 5 GOP willing to work with them who are planning on retiring at the end of the Congress, cut a deal for Ukraine aid and a few other redlines, commit to not running against the next GOP candidate in their districts, and support one of them to be speaker to run the House on a "confidence and supply" basis for key votes.
Or, we could have months of chaos where nothing gets done.
Midwestern droughts have reduced the flow of the Mississippi. Groundwater depletion has caused coastal land to sink below sea level. Sea-temperature increases raised the sea level in the Gulf. The result: rising ocean waters are out-competing the Mississippi flow, pushing up the riverbed, and will reach New Orleans’ water treatment plant. The city’s water supply will be undrinkable, while the salt leaches poisons out of lead pipes. They have one month.

For a long time, Mueller believed her only valuable contribution to the world was financial. Then, in 1984, after purchasing her first golden retriever, she was sure she’d found the perfect vessel for her mission to achieve world peace. That realization came one afternoon when her young niece came into the room and abruptly squeezed the dog’s testicles. The retriever didn’t defend himself, nor did he even flinch.
