The Way Things Should Work

When good reform, pushed for over a decade, manages to get through -- count this blogger as a happy camper. It's the way things work in an ideal world.

Congrats to the many, very dedicated people who pushed for CORI reform. The policy is now both strong and smart, and will allow for people who are trying to right their lives to have a fair shot of doing so, at the very same time that it will manage to stay as a check that helps keep others safe. Truly the best of both worlds.

Thankfully, the bi-annual, grind-to-a-halt distraction that is slot machine legislation on Beacon Hill didn't kill this bill that took a decade long and a lot of political courage to pass.
