Pawlenty of fun

Governor Pawlenty has a plan to put more money into mental health care. Mental health is far too often overlooked as a necessary investment. Too often, we are paying to incarcerate people who really need treatment for mental health issues. Throwing these people in prison is a waste of money and humanity. Anything to increase focus on mental health is good.

A ban on protests near funerals? Not so good. It's not that I think Fred Phelps should be protesting the funerals of soldiers killed in Iraq; it's just that I don't think a law is the right response.
