NYC budget deal reached, and early at that.
Safe Streets Bill lowering NYC speed limit to 25 MPH passed in Albany.
Central Park 5 wrongful conviction case settled. A monumental injustice has now been corrected (as best we can, anyway). I still vividly recall the media frenzy over this case at the time. I can't imagine what it's like to lose the prime years of your life for a crime you didn't commit. For anybody who complains about the payout - how much money would you trade your freedom and reputation for?
There's also the medical marijuana issue, but I'll have to take a closer look at that. From what I read yesterday we were looking at a mixed bag with that bill.
Damn, that's a good day!
