BostonHerald.com - National Politics: Congress passes `doomsday' plan
"With no fanfare, the U.S. House has passed a controversial doomsday provision that would allow a handful of lawmakers to run Congress if a terrorist attack or major disaster killed or incapacitated large numbers of congressmen."

Pundits are mainly playing up the idea that this could mean a handfull of Congresspeople could launch wars. This would be really troubling if we lived back in the century when wars happened after Congress declared them. Right now it's just nostalgic and moot.
