Sometimes the Good Guys Really Do Win

I know it doesn’t seem like it, but sometimes in life the good guys really do win. In this case, I’m referring to the release of reporters Laura Ling & Euna Lee after Bill Clinton’s visit to North Korea.

Now I know that is oversimplifying things, us-vs-them, good-vs-evil. But you know what I mean. It seems sometimes, that the innocent lose, the smart are ridiculed, and diplomacy is trumped by the drums of war. Not this time, though.

I go back and forth on Bill Clinton. I thought he was a decent President, although some of his trade policies haven’t helped us. I was mad at him during the primaries. Now, after this, I have to admit I like the guy a little bit, again.

Here’s some video I saw this evening on CNN. A press conference featuring Laura Ling.
