Good news this evening

For those of you that haven't heard, there are two items that are cause for rejoicing in my house.

The Boy Scouts of America long-time executive Douglas Smith has been fired on the grounds that he has been charged with receiving and distributing child pornography.

The best part? He hails from Irving, Texas, down where the yellow roses bloom. Wonder if he's friends with Bushie?

I just don't get it. They won't have any good, upstanding gay men in their leadership, but they put up with this pedophile for 39 years.

One other tidbit, then I have to run.

Johnny Cochran, infamous defender of O.J. Simpson, has died.

I am not sad...not one bit.

As the daughter of a battering victim who died at the hands of her husband/perpetrator/abuser/murderer, I find it very difficult to feel anything other than joy at the prospect that maybe by his death, a potentially guilty client of his may get his just due.

One can only hope.
