From The Better-Late-Than-Never File...

Update on the Republican senators who did not cosponsor Senate Resolution 39, issuing a formal apology to our country's lynching victims and their families: Late yesterday, the heat must have gotten to Michael Crapo (R-ID) -- that's pronounced 'cray-poe,' wise guys! -- and Chuck Grassley (R-IA) as they finally signed on as cosponsors of the resolution.

While Iowa is a fairly enlightened state, it was nice of Crapo to run the risk of alienating his hooded constituents in Northern Idaho.
