The opposite of progress

Profiles in Courage is an award-winning book by JFK, published in 1955, describing eight senators from history and how they courageously acted for what they believed, fighting against popular opinion and crossing party lines.

Now, more than 50 years later, someone should write a book about any eight random senators that we have today, listing all the pork and entitlements and gerrymandering they fought for, while promoting politics as usual. It should be written in list format, in the world's ugliest font. Call it Profiles in Courier.
