I’ve decided, beginning today, to highlight every small sign that comes my way (and please feel free to do the same) that we can cheer, support, replicate and publicize.
Starting with this, North Carolina voting rights restrictions gutted from today’s New York Times.
The Times didn’t use the word “gutted,” but a lower court ruling to keep the state from “surgically targeting” the disenfranchisement of black voters was refused a hearing by the U.S. Supreme Court. Without explanation, just a brush-off by John Roberts & Company, and I say, “That’s today’s happy news. Maybe SCOTUS, despite the conservative majority, has a moral spine.”
