Yes, we all know about this, as inscribed here by 538 Significant Digits:
Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi gave a speech to the House of Representatives yesterday highlighting the stories of DACA recipients that went on for eight hours, making it at least the longest continuous speech in the chamber’s history dating back to 1909, when Rep. Champ Clark (D-Mo.) spoke for 5 hours and 15 minutes. [The Washington Post]
What you don’t know, though, I will inscribe with two significant digits: 4 and 5.
The 4 represent the inches of Nancy Pelosi’s heels as she stood for more than 8 hours and spoke, movingly and marvelously.
The 5 are the seconds it took me to see that photo of Nancy’s heels, to stand up from my computer, to think about having such heels under my feet while speaking, and then…to sit down again.
