Sea of Reads

Peripatetic, itinerant, eclectic musings about books, politics, history, language, culture, and anything else that interests me.

Attention, Information Junkies!

Do your eyes widen when you hear the words “complete archives”? Does your heart skip a beat at the thought of being able to watch the entire Iran-Contra hearings as if they were happening today, or at the idea of comparing what Congress critters said last week to what they said 10 years ago?

Yeah, I do, too. That’s why I cheered when I saw this news:

Researchers, political satirists and partisan mudslingers, take note: C-Span has uploaded virtually every minute of its video archives to the Internet.

The archives, at, cover 23 years of history and five presidential administrations and are sure to provide new fodder for pundits and politicians alike. …

Major cool.
