Lost in the Shuffle

...of supreme court nominee hearings and celebrity deaths and torture revelations and health care reform and governors cheating/seceding/quitting is this exciting tidbit of national political news. Obama's choice for surgeon general is a black (yay!) woman (yay!) who has a long history of humanitarian work (yay!) and provides medical care to a poor rural community (yay!). Feels like progress to me.
