Filibuster: Democrats will miss it when it’s gone - Opinion - The Boston Globe: "Until the release of “Planet of the Apes,” science fiction films routinely gave their characters one last shot at redemption. Catastrophe could be avoided if they simply chose to mend their ways. Departing from that formulaic tradition, Heston’s final scene confronting a crumbling Statue of Liberty captures the anguish and bitterness of someone who realizes there is no going back: “You maniacs . . . you blew it up!”
This may not be the epitaph that Senate Democrats hoped for, but that’s exactly what they’ve done."
