Blue NC: It’s awfully hard to conduct K12 classes online in North Carolina when 30 percent of students and 10 percent of teachers don’t have adequate internet connections.

Blue Mass Group: Who wants to be a Massachusetts Senator?

Lawyers, Guns and Money: Nice Supreme Court you have there, Republicans. Shame if anything happened to it.

Speaking of which, your quote of the day:
