11. I wrote this without noticing there is another thread on it.
which contains a lot of discussion and opinions.
Seems there is an interesting variance on how the pocket veto works.

The Senate IS in session, according to a variety of reliable sources.
So Congress is not adjourned, just the House.
Apparently Reid left the Senate in session to avoid recess appointments
( gee, I thought he was a Dem).
