Occasionally, there's good news -- HOLIDAY EDITION!

Since I'm sure your head is as close to exploding as mine is with the recent news that King George has declared himself above the law without batting an eyelash, I figured now's as good a time as any to point you to a blog I've added recently to my blogroll called Rose Colored News. Their tagline says it all: "good news for progressives about politics, the environment, health, and more". As I've said, I'm an optimist by nature, so I don't do the "glass is half empty" gig very well. But I figure whether you're like me or not, we can all use regular doses of good news about battles/skirmishes we're actually winning in these dark days, when it seems like so much of the world is on the Hellbound Express.

Today's good news? Deforestation rates have decreased in the Amazon.

Oh, and in case I don't update again before, oh, June or whatever (considering my recent track record), Happy ChristmaHanuKwanzaaRamadanTetSolsticeSaturnaliaRegularDay*, everyone!
