A Little Good News!

Everyone could use some good news, and today, Texas obliged us! 

Not much better news out of the world of politics or many who deserve the honor more:

Tom Delay was sentenced to 3 years in prison!!!

Former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, once considered among the nation's most powerful and feared lawmakers, was sentenced to three years in prison Monday for a scheme to influence elections that already cost him his job, leadership post and millions of dollars in legal fees.
The sentence comes after a jury in November convicted DeLay, a Houston-area Republican, on charges of money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering for using a political action committee to illegally send corporate donations to Texas House candidates in 2002.

Still awaiting word on if his very good friend Paul Ryan will be visiting him in prison!

 I love the republican party!
