From the "Credit where it's due" file...

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Gov. Bob Riley signed a resolution Thursday expressing ``profound regret'' for Alabama's role in slavery and apologizing for slavery's wrongs and lingering effects.

``Slavery was evil and is a part of American history,'' the Republican governor said. ``I believe all Alabamians are proud of the tremendous progress we have made and continue to make.''
It's late, but it's something.

Something even Goldy will applaud after a decent interval.
