The children in Washington have stopped their fighting and come to an agreement on the debt ceiling, averting a fiscal calamity, and now everyone is happy and satisfied.


This week's Political Junkie segment on Talk of the Nation focuses on what President Obama and Congress accomplished, with a look at how, if at all, the perception of Washington has changed. The one brief, shining moment: Gabby Giffords returns to the House floor.

Join substitute host Tony Cox and me today at 2 p.m. ET for the Junkie segment on TOTN, where you can often, but not always, find interesting conversation, useless trivia questions and sparkling jokes. And you can win a Political Junkie T-shirt!

If your local NPR station doesn't carry TOTN, you can always hear the program on the Web or on HD Radio. And if you are a subscriber to XM/Sirius radio, you can find the show there as well (siriusly).
