Good news, bad news

Dueling headlines in tomorrow's New York Times:

The good news? "The House overwhelmingly approved a bill that would bring all U.S. government contractors in the Iraq war zone under the jurisdiction of American criminal law."

The bad news? That "good news" doesn't amount to much: "Charges May Be Dropped for Marine in Iraq Killings."

Subjecting contractors to the same standards as the U.S. military? How about subjecting contractors and the U.S. military to the same standards as the rest of us?
