Life's Little Victories

Goods news is needed just as much as warning reports on villainy, so let's celebrate that the Senate voted almost unanimously to avoid media consolidation, the Polar Bear's listing as an endangered animal (though this administration weaseled in additional restrictions to it's protections), and the House of Representatives voting 149 to 141 to cut off funding for the war in Iraq (though it seems they've turned in the other direction now...), along with votes to put serious restriction on this administration's war policy (including a withdrawal timeline, and a GI bill to help the returning veterans).

This is thanks to those who stood for it.
The signed petitions, calls, letters, and passion extended to champion justice has make all the difference.

Here are a few other causes you can champion that deserve the same success
