I have a new representative in congress

Because I live in the bit of San Francisco where tourists don't go I don't get to have Nancy Pelosi as my representative in congress. My rep used to be the only Holocaust survivor to have served in the US Congress. He died in February and we have elected Jackie Speier.

[She] was sworn into Congress this morning and delivered a fiery speech criticizing President Bush's Iraq policy that led some Republicans to boo and walk out of the House chamber.
Jackie Speier also survived a murder attempt in Guyana by members of the Peoples Temple shortly before the Jonestown Massacre.

I am sure she will show herself to be as cowardly as most Democrats, but for now I am pleased.
