John Adams, on What Constitutes a Congress

"In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two is a law firm, and three or more is a congress."
John Adams

Quotation #30219, from The Quotations Page

John Adams was a Harvard graduate, and a lawyer, as well one of the signers of the American Declaration of Independence: more at "John Adams" (, a website published by the Independence Hall Association)

There are days when I feel like these words should be engraved on the walls of the House and Senate, as a reminder: and an incentive, to not live down to this opinion.
(The Lemming doesn't write about Congress very much, despite three recent posts: "Congress May Delay Television Digital Switch - I am Not Making This Up" (January 26, 2009); "Analog-to-Digital Television Switch: Oh No! How Will I Ever Afford a New Television Set?!" (January 8, 2009); "Analog-to-Digital Television Switch Coming February 17 - Or Not" (January 8, 2009).)
