give some love to Eliot

I hope this guy is seriously considering a presidential run in 2008:

A federal appeals court today overturned the Environmental Protection Agency's attempt to exempt power plants, refineries and other pollution sources from Clean Air Act rules that require them to install costly new pollution controls whenever they make changes that increase their emissions...

"We decline such a world view," said the unanimous decision of a three-judge panel that included Judge Janice Rogers Brown, a conservative appointed last summer by President Bush...

Plaintiffs in the case — more than a dozen states, including New York and California, and a large group of environmental organizations — hailed the decision as one of the most important in years for environmental protection. The law governs more than 800 power plants around the country as well as 17,000 factories, refineries and chemical plants.

"This is an enormous victory over the concerted efforts by the Bush administration to dismantle the Clean Air Act," Attorney General Eliot Spitzer of New York, whose office argued the case for the states, said in an interview. "It shows that the administration's effort to misinterpret and undermine the statute is illegal."

This is really good news for kids around the country - cleaner air means less asthma and longer lives. A cookie for Justice
Brown, too.

Thanks for that, Paramendra.

I am on the other coast, but I have been following what he's been doing going after big corporations that are harming people physically and economically, and have to admire that.

Sounds like he's a shoo-in for Gov, but if he does decide to make a run for President, I would likely send him some early turkee.
