6 years of showdowns in Congress haven't made a difference in the size of the federal government

Animated "chart of the day" shows how the U.S. population has aged over the year. Fascinating.

An amazing piece:

"The fact that they came to this event at all is truly extraordinary. As the day unfolded, we learned that many of the mothers had struggled with whether they were comfortable being so far away from their children for the day. For some, it was the first time since December. One mother told me that she keeps the private cell phone number of the school security guard with her so that she can check in during the day if she feels anxious. After all they have faced, it was truly a leap of faith to come spend the day with strangers."
