The world improves a bit

Jesse Helms died today, we will be celebrating with barbecue and fireworks.

This hateful, mean-spirited shitbag represented a certain segment of the American mind that has thankfully been beaten back a bit in recent years, but is in no way extinct. Still, it is nice to know that Helm's views no longer have a prominent place in American public life. Things can improve; progress is not entirely beyond our grasp.

A collection of classic Helms moments here.
