Rock on, Obama

THIS is the kind of stuff we've been waiting for!

Making the process of suing over inequitable pay a bit more sane (the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act)

List of Obama's executive orders (you should bookmark this):
http://www.archives.gov/federal-register/executive-orders/2009-obama.html

Five so far, among them:
1. Higher standards for ethical commitments by executive branch personnel - Makes it harder for lobbyists to take positions in the Obama regime, or to leave office and go into lobbying, among other things. This is GREAT.

2. Rolling back the use of torture in interrogation - Hell yeah.

3. Directive to close Guantanamo.  We'll see how this one turns out, but it's awesome to be moving forward on it.

Now, Obama's off to the wrong start in some other ways, methinks (a tax cheat to head the Treasury, really?), but I'm really liking some of the initial stances and rollbacks of the Bush crap.

Thanks, Mr. President.
