Spring Harbingers

Difficult to stay completely up on the news, but we're paying enough attention to note Howard Dean's megawatt smile as he shakes John Kerry's hand, in this morning's USA Today. A good sign.

In fact, for the last two or three days, all the signs of spring have been promising ... from Bush's caving in with the 9/11 Commission (saying he'll testify for as long as the commission has questions), with Ashcroft's Justice Department apparently backing off their fishing expedition into the medical files of women who've had abortions, to Kerry's good poll numbers (or more pertinently, Bush's continuing bad numbers ... the last I saw said independent voters, especially, are tilting decisively against the Windshield Cowboy).

Add to that the swaths of blooming galantus and aconite we've seen here in Pennsylvania, and it's almost enough to make you feel better about the state of the world.
