Terrific Tuesday Tidings: The Economy, Gay Marriage, and George Lucas is Kind of Cool?

It's Tuesday and that means it's time for my ongoing quest to become a more positive person. Here are the news stories that made me happy this week:
  • So it's not exactly news that President Obama inherited the worst recesion since the Great Depression, but the next time a conservative hassles you with the job numbers point them to this (note that under Obama the economy has recovered all lost private sector jobs and the remaining increase in unemployment is explain in public sector job cuts forced by Republican austerity measures):
He and I share many positions, but his embrace of an unrelenting partisan mindset is irreconcilable with my philosophy of governance and my experience of what brings results for Hoosiers in the Senate. In effect, what he has promised in this campaign is reflexive votes for a rejectionist orthodoxy and rigid opposition to the actions and proposals of the other party. His answer to the inevitable roadblocks he will encounter in Congress is merely to campaign for more Republicans who embrace the same partisan outlook. He has pledged his support to groups whose prime mission is to cleanse the Republican party of those who stray from orthodoxy as they see it.
