Good versus Evil: surprise upset!

If you can cast your mind back as far as seven-eight weeks ago, you might recall the nation being shocked, SHOCKED to discover there were (*gasp*) poor people in New Orleans. And of course everyone was all motivated and damned if it didn't look like people were going to find their missing souls and everything.

And of course the first thing the WH did was to make it legal for companies working on rebuilding the Gulf Coast to pay less than the prevailing wage in the area. Yes, let's address poverty by slashing pay - that's always been such a crowd-pleaser for us before.

Well, today, Evil blinked, and the wage-cuts will expire on Nov. 8th rather than being made permanent. Thank you, Rep. George Miller, Champion of Good.
