Good News - From Bush's mileage move to the release of Kidnapped U.S. reporter Jill Carroll

Lots of GOOD news the past couple days.

The Bush administration is increasing the mileage standards for vehicles – a move that will save billions in future gas bills for American motorists.
And this great news from Iraq: Kidnapped U.S. reporter Jill Carroll has been released after nearly three months in captivity, Iraq police and the leader of the Islamic Party said Thursday. Her editor said she was in good condition.
And Houston got more rain. We really needed it. The timing is good. Over the weekend, I started hacking out weeds in the yard with a hoe-- now the grass has a chance to grow without being choked. It was a long overdue project. I found it strangely therapeutic to chop out weeds by the roots with a hoe instead of just spraying them. And you get instant results. My wife doesn’t like pesticides near the pets so I returned to my farm roots and have a couple new blisters to prove it. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger (people are still amazed I didn’t die after running against the Majority Leader).

More good news – Israel elected Kadima, the peace party that won a majority of seats and is moving forward on Palestinian issues that need to be resolved – Olmert is following in Sharon’s footsteps to reduce the long-burning violence that has plagued that region.

Standby for more good news…(Forgive the spacing above - blogger does that now and then for some reason).
