laundromats, underground libraries, and criminal charges: a library link round-up

I have so many cool stories about libraries and librarians, scattered through multiple email and social media accounts. Lucky for you, I wanted to gather them all in one place. Thanks to everyone who ever sent me one of these.* * * * *Librarians in laundromats! Community librarians are all about taking literacy to the people. In library jargon, we're trying to reach the non-users. If that sounds a bit drug-dealer-ish, it's not a bad analogy: come get a taste, then come back for more.The puns jus...

Federal Court Permanently Blocks Michigan's Sex Offender Registry Law, Tells Legislators To Try Writing A Constitutional One (techdirt)

Michigan's sex offender registry has been struck down as unconstitutional. It's the result of multiple legal battles, tracing all the way back to 2010. The latest round of litigation has finally killed the law -- something legislators allowed to stay on the books after being told pretty much the same thing by the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals in 2016. If you really want to dig into the details of this years-long attempt to overturn the law, you really should read Guy Hamilton-Smith's guest po...

Captive ‘blood slave’ donor dogs could eventually be freed by California legislation

Two bills aiming to eliminate “closed-colony” animal blood banks in California — and free captive “blood slaves,” usually former racing greyhounds — have been introduced in the state Legislature and could finally end the controversial practice for good. On the Assembly side is AB 1953 by Richard Bloom, D-Santa Monica; and in the Senate, there’s SB 1115 by Scott Wilk, R-Santa Clarita. They would legalize a voluntary, human-style blood donation system for animals — something now forbidden in Calif...

Go to Hell: town offers free weddings but anniversaries will be a problem

Hell, Michigan is offering a limited-time marriage deal: 29 free weddings on leap day, 29 February, at 2.29pmI have heard it said that there is no point in going to Heaven, because all the cool people will be in Hell.

Michigan State shakes off sloppy play to beat Nebraska 86-65

As far as Tom Izzo is concerned, a 21-point win over lowly Nebraska doesn't mean everything's OK now for Michigan State. The Spartans, who have been struggling for almost a month, had a good shooting night, dominated the boards and got big contributions from reserves Gabe Brown and Kyle Ahrens in the 86-65 win Thursday. ''I can't be very excited about us even thought it looks like we shot well,'' Izzo said.

Fab Five: Takeaways From Michigan's Win To Finish Season Sweep Of Rutgers

If you would've told many that junior forward Isaiah Livers would miss his 10th game of the season and that his replacement, sophomore forward Brandon Johns, would score just one point, most would predict Rutgers improves to 18-0 at home on the season. Johns was in foul trouble most of the night, and that's where sophomore forward Colin Castleton comes in. Castleton came in early in the second half, and added a big lift, after being a non-factor for much of the season in just over eigh...

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Facebook Videos of Her Trip to Standing Rock Reveal Her Political Awakening

Almost everyone who came to Standing Rock repeated the same legend. Someone, maybe Crazy Horse, had made a prophecy a long time ago—probably in the late 1870s—about the looming destruction of the planet. The “who” and “when” parts of the story were always fuzzy, but the prophecy was always the same: the “black snake” of darkness and discord was going to infect the land, seeping into the fires and air and water, spreading conflict and violence, and threatening the reciprocal relationship bet...
