A Reuters article on Speaker Boehner's "Plan B" by Thomas Ferraro and
Richard Cowan and Rachelle Younglai on Yahoo News this morning says:

>Boehner decided to make the announcement [that he would not schedule
>a vote on "Plan B"} at a closed-door meeting of House Republicans in
>a room in the basement of the Capitol.
>Before he did, he led his troops in a recitation of the Pledge of
>Allegiance and then the Serenity Prayer, which includes the passage:
>"God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the
>courage to change things that I can and the wisdom to know the difference."
>"It was a very emotional meeting," {Rep.] Cole [of Oklahoma] said.
