  • From HuffPost Politics: “Imagine this as a [congressional] staffer: instead of working in tiny cubicles with your face in a computer and your back to your colleagues, you were in a large open space with clusters of moveable desks surrounded by the Democratic and Republican staffers from your state delegation,” writes John McCarthy. “The space could be outfitted with phone booths for private meetings with your constituents, and conference rooms for meetings just with your boss’s personal office team.
