    Daily Kos has a regular feature on “Good News” … today’s included a couple of pieces of news I’d not seen mentioned elsewhere:

    There were also twenty ballot measures in various jurisdictions that dealt with some measure of police reform—all of them passed…. As Bernie Sanders put it, “Florida passed a $15 minimum wage; Montana, South Dakota, Arizona & New Jersey legalized marijuana; Colorado passed 12 weeks of paid family leave; Arizona increased taxes on the rich to fund education… All over America, voters approved a progressive agenda.

    Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo on Tuesday signed into law a bill designed to eliminate frivolous lawsuits intended to silence or impose economic pain on whistleblowers, journalists and activists. Such legal actions are known as “strategic lawsuits against public participation” or SLAPP suits.

    Heck, even Josh Marshall’s Talking Points Memo had some good news this morning.

    The Census Bureau has identified issues in the data from the 2020 decennial census that will take an additional 20 days or so for it to fix, and thus delay the release of survey’s apportionment data until after President Trump leaves office, TPM has learned.

    And I liked an item in the Colorado Sun …

    Sorry, Grinch.

    Coronavirus won’t stop Colorado-based NORAD from tracking Santa.

    The North American Aerospace Defense Command has announced that NORAD will track Santa on Dec. 24, just as it has done for 65 years. … Normally, 150-160 volunteers crowd into a conference room at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, … the number of volunteers has been drastically cut to what NORAD expects will be fewer than 10 people per shift.

    the NORAD Tracks Santa website — noradsanta.org — as well as social media pages, Amazon Alexa, Onstar and a new mobile app will still be available with up-to-the-minute details on Santa’s location. A social media team will operate from a separate conference room at the base.
