Today brings some surprisingly positive news on the governance front:
- The Supreme Court might invalidate software patents next year.
- Congress might fix the doc fix for good.
- Patty Murray and Paul Ryan might agree on a bipartisan budget that undoes a small part of the sequester cuts.
I don't know that I'd put money on any of these—especially the first one, more's the pity—but it sure represents an improvement over the past few months.
