Plus, it would be the right thing to do

Avedon Carol (Sideshow) notes
An editorial in The Washington Post called A Vote in the House, about the fact that DC residents still have no real representation in Congress, contains a statement you don't see very often: That inexcusable situation exists despite polls showing that the American public favors congressional representation for D.C. residents.
Let's face it, Congress is a bunch of spineless grubs. I'm including Democrats, who could have done something about this a long time ago and for whom it would have been advantageous. I can kind of understand reluctance on full statehood, DC being a federal reserve, but congressional representation is a fundamental right.
