1. Ah yes, Goodnight Moon. A well-known classic...for toddlers.

But the last word belonged to Sen. Cruz, who ended his emotional speech with a quiet benediction: “Goodnight stars. Goodnight air. Goodnight noises everywhere.” (response to Borowitz...for clarification)

3. One of Borowitz's best, and that is a high bar.

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Acknowledging that the government shutdown was coming to an end, an emotional Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) took to the Senate floor today to make an impassioned speech, telling his colleagues, “The dream of keeping poor people from seeing a doctor must never die.”

7. Where did they find that picture of Cruz?

It reminds me of the 'halo' pictures of shrub. Anyone know who took it?
