Has anyone got any good news?

I'm at the point of sharing Digby's despair except not just for tasers.

John McCain thinks that it was a mistake to read the Times Square bombing suspect - an American citizen - his Miranda rights. And Rick Perry thinks the Deepwater oil spill disaster is an act of God, which I'm sure would please BP's execs who are peddling furiously to convince us all that it's certainly not their fault and, what the hell, maybe it's not.

Well, maybe Perry has a point - if you can call "Republicans" an "act of God", kind of like the black plague.

Anyway, this seems like a good day to commemorate the National Guard shooting of 4 students at Kent State University in 1970. Here's a good blog post about it and the Pulizer Prize-winning picture that no one should ever forget:
