Good news, bad news

One step forward, two steps back, more head-banging all around...
Good news
A US Circuit Court ruled that the Bushies can't continue military detention of a US resident that they haven't yet charged (although, you know, they've had him in jail for six years now -- a lot longer than his master's degree would have taken). I'm sure there will be more appeals, but at least a ray of sanity in this ongoing madness.

Bad news
A Democratic majority was supposed to make some kind of difference in national law-making, yes? Apparently no change in backing for abstinence-only sex "education" programs beloved of the right . . . Amazing.
