“The Titanic sinks, the police arrest a murderer, and aliens threaten to conquer the earth! These are three examples of stories that make good melodrama, a popular dramatic form during many historical eras that continues to terrify, reassure, and propagandize audiences today.”—
Also aren’t all those things together an episode of Doctor Who? Like straight up?
Josh:Let's talk a little bit about what the judiciary committee's concerns would be. We can safely say reproductive rights are gonna come up.
Toby:They're going to say judicial activism, particularly in jury. How would you address that?Evelyn Baker Lang: And you're who?
Lang:Who are you? We're playing committee.
Josh:This will be coming from one of the eleven Republicans on Judicial.
