- Thoughtful piece from Abigail Thernsstrom on racial politics and gerrymandering. Wish there was more of this kind of dialogue from both right and left instead of the usual racial bomb-throwing.
- Pretty cool idea: the Genetic Music Project.
- Looks to be another incident of Las Vegas cops intimidating a citizen for recording them.
- They pretty much nailed me here. Interesting to see a couple open-minded liberals use the word queen as an insult.
- Cops taswer a kid, break his arm in saggy pants altercation.
- Jury rebels against NYPD in case of woman who confronted cops over her son’s arrest in a stop-and-frisk case. Maybe I’m just noticing it more, but it seems like we’re seeing more and more of these juries who are willing to question law enforcement. That’s a good thing.
