Oh Happy Day

What's this? Atrios brings good news that after a woman wrote to her local paper insisting that liberals ought not be heard on the paper's editorial page, she recanted and apologized. Turns out she used bible quotes out of context and demonstrated her ignorance of the intentions of the founders. Many folks will think that this'll give them a reason to crow "Gotcha!" and say "in your face, conservative byotch!" But not me. As a lefty, I'm just happy that some form of reasoned discourse, coupled with "discussions with supportive members" of her church helped her understand the error of her thinking. Gives me hope that perhaps reason might actually be worth something on occasion.
