What I would put in this capsule would depend on what was going to be done with the capsule. For example, if it were to be launched into space, I know a few people I’d like to see on board!!

intransigence of House Republicans
pictures and stories of the 26 people killed in Newtown, CT
a list of all people killed by gun violence this year
campaign buttons – Romney & Obama
Grover Norquist’s tax pledge
The text of the Affordable Care Act (known as “Obamacare”)
The death toll in Syria
