Ashcroft has resigned! Calico cats everywhere will be relieved, statues can shed their robes, and Justice Department workers will no longer be asked to sing Let the Eagle Soar. (From the Guardian story: "When asked why she opposed the workplace singalong, one of the department's lawyers said: "Have you heard the song? It really sucks."")
And besides all that, Ashcroft told Bush, in his letter of resignation, that "The objective of securing the safety of Americans from crime and terror has been achieved." Fancy that! I guess that means the War on Terror is over, and we can let all those people out of Guantanamo. I may leave my car and house unlocked just to celebrate.
Then again, maybe not.
