Bush commutes Libby's prison sentence

Says he respects the jury's verdict but found the judge's 30-month prison sentence 'excessive.'

Perhaps not surprising, but still sickening.

To recover from our upset stomachs, let's go make ourselves useful someplace like this -- organization directed by a friend in NY which helps formerly incarcerated people (and we're not talking powerful white government officials) with the difficult process of re-entry.*

* Yet one more NGO that has been sitting in the right-hand column of this blog just pining for you to have a look.

And do go and read janinsanfran's most recent posts, four or five or them, for signs of life and hope and, as usual, some interesting analysis.
