Though there was plenty nonsense to go around (a few times) in Washington this week, let’s review the good news:
-Hayden confirmed. (I share Jed’s concerns, but am pleased that partisanship did not trump excellent qualifications and the President’s prerogative.)
-The absurd Spanish-American war phone tax is no more, after the Bush administration finally gave up the fight. (Via Taranto)
– The economy surged ahead at 5.3 percent in the first quarter, according to revised numbers. Still the Chicago Tribune whines “lower than expected.”
-Gas prices are down in Northern Virginia. And by down, I mean by 2 to 3 percent.
Could be worse…
