Ashleigh Burroughs on Gabrielle Giffords' Return to Congress
By The Burrow on August 02, 2011
Featured BlogHer Network Post
Editor's Note: Like a lot of us who are outraged about the debt ceiling crisis, BlogHer Ashleigh Burroughs -- always outspoken with her political views -- is not very happy with Washington these days. She starts a post today with "I am sizzling. Steam is pouring out of my ears. You do not want to be near me if you are a member of Congress."
But Ashleigh, who was shot alongside Gabrielle Giffords this past January (and is speaking this week at BlogHer '11 in San Diego -- can't wait!), also has something to celebrate today: Rep. Giffords' return to the House of Representatives to add her vote to today's approval of the debt ceiling compromise. What a spot of joy in the midst of a grim week in Washington. -- Julie
JannyLou called and the local ABC and NBC affiliates called and everyone is smiling and I'm going live on the 5pm news.... a phone interview since I didn't want to clean and they didn't want to travel. How nice to be talking about something positive for a change.
