State Dept. backs down

Sister Diana Momeka, the Iraqi Catholic nun whose visa application had previously (and inexplicably) been blocked by the State Dept., is now going to be permitted to enter the U.S., apparently due to protests by religious freedom advocates.

A small victory, perhaps, but these days I'm grateful for any at all.

See, the power always belonged to the people, and these days, it's expressed most forcefully through social media (for all its admitted faults). Welcome, sister.
