Upbeat Post of the Day

I intended to post this yesterday, but goofed. Have to find another for today, to make up.

The AP, via TPM:

Former first lady Barbara Bush was discharged from a hospital Monday while former President George H.W. Bush is expected to be moved from the hospital’s intensive care unit soon.

Politics aside, I always liked GHW and Barbara Bush. They came across as decent people, if a little detached from the world most of us inhabit. Money and a lifelong career in government will do that. But hey, today’s a good day for them both, so I’m thankful. Pneumonia in elderly patients is deadly, but not this time.

(Yes, I know Mr. Bush was a WW2 airman, and got fished out of the drink after being shot down. He’s got a lot of varied service under his belt.)
