While the Turkey is Cooking

We have a lot to be thankful for this year.  Here are some uplifting articles to read about and then talk about (or not) around the dinner table:

David Sirota on Public Financing, a critically important next step in rebuilding our democracy.

The Houston janitors, with the aid of the SEIU, won a pretty unlikely victory, showing all of us it can be done.

Charlie Cook confirms that we did have a wave.

Turns out that nasty DeLay-led, mid-decade redistricting in Texas means the state has no clout in a Democratic-led Congress.

James Wolcott muses on why it is that red states lead the nation in violent crime, divorce, illegitimacy, and incarceration, among other evils.

Meet Jerry McNerney, down-to-earth math whiz and alternative energy expert who took out Richard Pombo in CA-11

Take a moment to savor this incredible opening we have to rebuild our democracy.  And have a wonderful and relaxing day.
