I was listening to the gubernatorial debate as I was parked in front of my house and tweeting irritably about our dismal future with either Jerry Brown or Meg Whitman as governor. It was a rough day of classes and hearing the lame responses to debate questions didn’t help smooth it out. I finally stopped listening in disgust, walked up my three flights of stairs, booted up my PC, and opened my news homepage to see an uplifting announcement:

The injunction on federally funded stem-cell research has been lifted, and, drum roll…. its a permanent lift.

Even though California is going down the shit hole, I guess there are still good things in this world.
