The police department convened a hastily called meeting with the families on Jan. 26 to discuss the status of the investigation.

Rarely, however, are there so many victims. Legislative gridlock, which was already bad enough, has devolved into a cynical, poisoned status. With a few obvious votes, Congress could improve the lives of millions of people — the unemployed, the undocumented, the uninsured. But instead of being helped, those in need are punished for reasons that are nakedly political.
