All Hail Health Care

This week's Phoenix editorial hails a mighty Democratic victory. An excerpt here:

The Democrats won and the Republicans lost. That, in a nutshell, is the bottom line. After 15 roiling months of bitter and divisive debate, the nation’s first African-American president, Barack Obama, in harness with the first female Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, made history. It was, as the frequently excitable Vice-President Joseph Biden put it, “a big fucking deal.”
Also, the new edition of the Phoenix hits the stands today, with a behind-the-scenes look at the venerable SXSW music festival in Austin, Texas, remembrances of rocker Alex Chilton and actor Fess Parker, and a piece that asks why the nation's black leadership hasn't spoken up on a shameful set of billboards suggesting abortion is a plot aimed at black genocide.
