Before last night’s Billboard Music Awards got underway in earnest, host Kelly Clarkson went off-script. “There’s something I’d like to — this is gonna be so hard — there’s something I’d like to say about the tragedy at Santa Fe High School,” where just days before, ten people were killed and 13 others injured at the 22nd school shooting...

The Supreme Court just gave a ray of hope to partisan gerrymanderers
Last October, when the Supreme Court heard a landmark challenge to Wisconsin’s gerrymandered state assembly maps, there appeared to be a real danger that the state’s lawmakers would soon have to compete in a free and fair election.
