Senate Bolides

Senator Bill "Bolide" Frist is bringing his show to the floor. It will be interesting to see the conclusion. I don't think it is going to be what he expected.

From here:
The term bolide (from the Greek βολις, bolis, missile) can refer to either an extraterrestrial body that collides with the Earth, or to an exceptionally bright, fireball-like meteor regardless of whether it ultimately impacts the surface...If the meteor is brilliant enough to cast shadows, it is a fireball.
That's like in "Bolus the 'roids, Dr. Casey."

I'm predicting a fireball. There will be shadows on the Capitol walls.
