Justice is done. Maybe. (Tom DeLay sentenced). Also, Japan’s feminist hero: an American

Posted by Charles II on January 7, 2013

Via Avedon, former House Majority Leader Tom “The Hammer” DeLay earns himself 3 years in prison, assuming he doesn’t jump his ridiculously low bond, get the sentence overturned, or get a pardon from the Republican Governor. [Oops. My bad. The article is from 2011. Thanks, PW.]

Also via Avedon, we learn of Beate Gordon, who helped write gender equality into Japan’s Constitution. It has never fully become a reality (as it has not in the US), but what she did dramatically improved the lot of people who had been treated as property until then. Quite an accomplishment for a 22 year old.

    Someone linked to an old HuffPo story but this only shows up at Google News as a blog item. But it does make you wonder what happened to the legal proceedings against one of the most corrupt members of Congress ever.
