WHITE SMOKE

Congress should vote like Catholic cardinals

Catholic Cardinals put their vote for pope on paper and in a disguised handwriting. After votes are tallied, white or black smoke spews from a chimney. Congress should try this. That way they can vote for the changes they’re willing to accept across the aisle anonymously and without fear of party punishment.
