I'm amazed and pleased to learn that Laura Miller, a muckracking journalist of many years (not the Salon book critic), has just been elected Mayor of Dallas in a runoff vote. Dallas is the heart of Bush Country, a city run behind the scenes by righteous conservative businessmen. Miller's in for the fight of her life, but that this can happen in Dallas, now, gives me hope that there may be enough populist anger about Enron, etc., to evict Bush and the other thieves come 2004. The odds against her winning were simply unbelievable!
