Updates: Catching up over the holidays, I see that a couple of my previous blog posts may turn out to be untrue. I criticized environmentalists for torching houses in Maryland to protest urban sprawl. Although that was the general belief at the time, it turns out that there appears to be little evidence that environmentalists did this, but instead it might have been carried out by racists. While some loony lefties have carried out destruction resulting in massive pollution all in the name of saving the environment, this doesn't seem to be the case here.

And congressional Republicans have changed course on their plan to ease ethics rules in order to save Tom DeLay's hide. The GOP initially wanted to get rid of a rule that forbids Republicans under indictment from serving in House leadership positions. Apparently mounting political pressure forced them to nix the change. It's just a shame it took the Republicans this long to do the right thing.
