Hooray for Huntsman!

The best news I've heard all day came from this morning's Deseret Morning News:
Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr. said for the first time Thursday that he'd veto a pair of controversial bills aimed at banning so-called gay-straight alliances in public high schools and at controlling what students are taught about evolution. "If they look and feel like they did in earlier incarnations, I will veto them. We'll have to see what they look like when they reach my desk," Huntsman told the Deseret Morning News following his monthly press conference televised on KUED Channel 7.

I have had the sense that Governor Huntsman would veto the Origins of Life bill when he talked about "message" legislation and frivolous bills back in January. But this is the first time he has actually come forward and stated that he is likely to veto this specific bill. Good for you, Governor Huntsman!
