It’s good news Thursday

The EPA is dropping investigations into 50 power plants for past violations of the Clean Air Act, at the recommendation of Dick “Evil Personified” Cheney. Meanwhile, Jerry Falwell and Lou Sheldon win an incremental battle in their war on women’s rights. And it’s possible that these men and women could still be alive today (though Josh Marshall wants to know who’s spinning who on that one.)

It would be soul-crushingly depressing, if I weren’t such a sunny and optimistic person.
