 DLC: Cleaning House by Bruce Reed
Because House members are elected in increasingly polarized districts -- and House rules severely limit debate and amendments, making it harder for members to work out their differences -- the House has become the world's greatest deliberative trash bin.
Sadly, the political ethos of the House is infecting the rest of the body politic.
In the House, Democrats could end up running a great campaign, winning the popular vote, and still falling short of a majority because of the way districts are drawn.

Bruce Goff might be regard as an organic architect to the extent that his designs emerge directly from considerations of function and site, client and climate.
Bavinger house was Goff's most forceful exploration of the indeterminate manner, clearly differentiating the general, loosely defined volume from the geometric units it contained.
The house, unlike other house, will probably never be ¡¥complete¡¦ because it is intended to keep growing, in a state of flux, with its occupants and I hope it will continue to be inspiring and beautiful to them.

 Free Bruce | VI. JAIL HOUSE INFORMANTS: POLICE COMPLICITY
In April, 1983 I was illegally removed from juvenile hall and housed in the adult County Jail's infamous snitch tank, the 7000 Module.
There, I was set up (or "booked" [447] in inmate parlance) by three savvy jail house informants who, after I discussed my case and, with one of them, even shared my police reports, all claimed I'd confessed to them [350].
The State's presentation of him to the jury was nothing more than a Potemkin's Village, an elaborate but empty facade cobbled together out of Hughes' obsession for freedom and the State's uncompromising desire to convict, which transformed an ailing six year plea bargain case into a vital, 15 to Life guilty verdict.

 Not PC: Architect v Architect: 'Bavinger House,' by Bruce Goff
Bruce Goff spent his life designing and working simply to delight himself and his clients.
He worked through the war years as an army engineer, delighting in using found materials and 'borrowed' structures to do things with them for which they were never intended, such as this simple chapel built on the cheap using Quonset Huts.
The 'pods' are hung off the wall as it ascends, providing withdrawing, bedroom and study space that can be closed off with curtaining (don't ask, some writers suggest something about goose feathers) but mostly remain open to the whole glorious space in which they hover.

Where Harbor Lights was limited to a smaller band, Hot House takes the swing and jazz and fusion and infuses more horns, stronger drums and ups the beats to near frenzied levels.
Not to ignore the lyrics, though; Bruce, ever the storyteller, blends the tale of a horn player with the music he plays so perfectly that the songs sweeps me away from whatever I'm doing every time I hear it.
Hot House Ball, for being the title track, doesn't reach the same levels as White Wheeled Limousine or Country Doctor in my favorites list but is still a decent song.
