Mike's Blog Round Up
August 17, 2016

Election Law Blog: Like North Carolina, Texas will ask the Supreme Court to reinstate its draconian voter ID law for this November’s elections.

Towleroad: Japanese pole vaulter gets shafted at the Olympics.

Plunderbund: In Ohio, the Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow practices the shameless nepotism of yesterday.

The Gothamist: The Times Square location of Señor Frog’s suddenly and mysteriously closed. CouldSeñor Tadpole’s in the OC be next?

Talk to Action: The Founding Fathers were not fans of preacher-politicians.

Speaking of which, your quote of the day:
"What we need to do is amend the Constitution so it's in God's standards rather than trying to change God's standards so it lines up with some contemporary view of how we treat each other and how we treat the family." (Mike Huckabee, January 15, 2008)
