Today was a good day in Missouri.

We spend a lot of time talking about the bad things happening in Jefferson City. All the unchecked lobbyist gifts, campaign contributions, mean-spirited legislation targeting women, the poor, minorities, immigrants... let's just stop there.

Today was a good day.

Here are just a few highlights:
