Perry's smokestacks smacked down by judge

And everyone who likes to breathe said HOORAY!

The judge's order that Perry's fast-tracking of the coal-fired power plants was unconstitutional does not mean the coal plants are off the agenda. It just means that Perry overstepped his boundaries in forcing this on our state, and he'll have to go back to the drawing boards before mandating that Texas build these new plants and greatly exceed the EPA's emissions standards.

But it is the first environmental victory in Texas in a good, long while.

We can all breathe a little easier. For now.
