When will there be a good news day? One news day where the news is so good that it is the story of the day. A day that excites all Americans, whether they are Republicans, Democrats, or any other political persuasion. The news is so good that all the news coverage is overwhelmed by this wonderful event.
As expected, the news of Ben Bradlee's passing brought accolades for his work as editor of The Washington Post. He and the Post helped instill a new word into our national vocabulary: Watergate. But my one encounter with Mr. Bradlee was in a different context.

Immigration enforcement officials, or ICE, took my husband, after having overstayed his visa by 20 days. He was caught going ten miles over the speed limit, and now awaits deportation after a month-long incarceration.
