Happy MLK Day

America's homegrown terrorism again:
An incendiary device found along the route of a Martin Luther King Day parade in Spokane, Wash., was "likely capable of inflicting multiple casualties," the FBI said today.

On the plus side, former Senate Majority Leader and physician, Dr. Bill Frist, is telling his fellow Republicans to accept health care reform as "the law of the land" and move on.

I found myself taking a fresh look at Dr. Frist a few years after he left public office, when he appeared on the Real Time with Bill Maher and was quite sane and humanitarian, something he and his party were not especially known for during the W. Bush years on GOP dominance. I especially liked when he gently, but firmly, rebutted Maher on anti-vaccination b.s., one of Maher's most misguided positions.

So credit where credit is due, to the FBI and Dr. Frist. Happy Day After MLK Day.
