Mission Creep Watch

John Elwood reviews Monday’s relists, as well as some released holds. Because of the demands of my day job, I’m a little late with this installment. But what this post lacks in timeliness it more than makes up for in sheer tediousness. There were no new relists last week, so I hope you didn’t come here looking for success stories about last week’s bunch. And the two serial relists, Andrus v. Texas, 18-9674, and United States v. California, 19-532, seem to be returning on an endless loop. But tha...

What Will Happen To Abortion Rights After Justice Anthony Kennedy Retires?

This is not a drill: Justice Anthony Kennedy will retire from The U.S. Supreme Court, effective July 31, per a resignation letter sent to President Donald Trump on Wednesday. Please excuse me while I vomit on my shoes in panic over the inevitable loss of the rights to my own body. Not to sound alarmist, but this is yet another step in the direction of our IRL Handmaid’s Tale scenario. It’s all playing out, just as we predicted. Our rights are in more danger than ever, advocates and legal expert...

Who Is Attracted to Inspiring Media?

By Sophie H. Janicke Cat videos are hilarious, no doubt about that. But videos of altruism--like a bear saving a crow from drowning or a man in the subway giving his T-shirt to a homeless person--also make us somehow feel good inside. There's little question that inspiring media make the world a better place: Research has shown that we feel inspired to do good in the world when we experience a specific set of self-transcendent emotions, which include elevation, awe, and gratitude. These are the ...

The Overdose Crisis is Making America Finally Consider Supervised Injection Facilities

There is an overdose crisis in the United States. More people are now dying from overdose deaths than from car accidents. Overdose has become an issue that is being talked about at all levels of government and just last week President Obama launched a major initiative to address addiction and overdose. Many of the harm reduction practices that advocates have pushed for years are starting to be embraced by the Drug Czar and elected officials in both red and blue states. Many states have passed la...
