dismayed Vinnie

It took him long enough, but it appears that Dan Rather is fighting back against his pretty-certainly-unfair dismissal in response to Bush administration pressure some time ago.

He's a guy that's capable of making this happen, and I hope he does well at it. He deserves to.

According to the article, he's not particularly interested in the $70 million he's suing for -- but he *is* interested in using the lawsuit to take a lot of sworn depositions from a lot of people who have worked hard to screw up the integrity of the news.

I'm really, really glad he's doing this.
