Easter and it feels like Spring might finally be here. Last weekend we received around 3 inches of snow. Now it is finally above freezing and all the snow is melting, turning everything into a giant dirt slushy. Appealing. Then it freezes at night. Temperatures will keep rising through the week, getting up to around 10 degrees centigrade next weekend, or more. That is, according to the forecast. The outlook for democracy and human rights ... not so clear at the moment.
