Halimah Abdullah: Awesome Journalist
I'm enjoying this Halimah Abdullah piece from McClatchy, which lays out the substantial amounts of money that Big Tobacco spent on buying the 17 Senators who voted against letting the FDA regulate their product. There's this strong air of "Okay, look, I'll tell it how it is. Here are the bad people who are letting bad people buy bad public policy." Except that the buying didn't succeed, since the bill passed 79-17.
