Today in good news history: New York bans slavery

I would hope that this is good news to all of us, but I know better. In any event, I think a majority of us agree that this is a good thing. The state of New York decided to ban slavery in the state. Of course, this doesn’t mean that slavery stopped. As with many things, people will do things illegally. But, this was a nice step in the human rights parade.

July 4th is also a time when the United States celebrate their declaration of independence. So…you know…that’s cool.
