I noticed in a couple of recent news reports that Indiana has been made safe again for the bald eagle, which is a simple piece of good news worth celebrating in this era riven by an angry partisan divide and political revenge disguised as a plea for unity.

The eagle, a bird that nests exclusively in North America, was once plentiful but nearly extinct nationwide by the mid-20th century and nowhere to be seen in Indiana. But a vast public-private effort brought the bird back from the brink. It was reintroduced to Indiana in the mid-1980s and can now be found in 88 of our 92 counties.
