This week began like any other but ended in historic fashion. Just in the last few days, Sonia Sotomayor was confirmed as the first Hispanic Supreme Court Justice
and the American journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee were freed from a possible future of hard labor in North Korea
. If that's not enough cause for celebration, the Cash for Clunkers program got another $2 billion in funding
. Oh, and we hear job losses are on the decline
.This week in GOOD, we pored over the books of our youth
, hated on the word "moist," discovered yet more ways to save energy
, and took a look at Alaska's loneliest road
. We also learned about efficient housing
, the merits of a good team
, and how one photographer captured history in the making.
We'll see you next week. In the meantime, enjoy your weekend.Photo: the art department and friends are hard at work on the next issue.
