Pat, I know how precise you are about such things, so I'm sure you know that the Ds never had more than 58 members, and most of the time it was 56 or 57. If you want to add in the two Independents, one of which sided with Rs on many issues, there were 60 Ds/Is for a stretch of about a month and then later a stretch of about 4 months which included the end of year recess. I know you like to be accurate.
