Judge Keeps An Eye On SCOTUS As He Blocks Census Citizenship Question

U.S. District Judge Jesse Furman found himself in an extraordinary position as he handed down a decision Tuesday declaring illegal the Trump administration’s move to add a citizenship question to the census. As trial in the case was wrapping up in November, the Supreme Court announced it would hear arguments on a dispute in the case in February. More remarkable, still, is that the dispute — over a judge’s order the Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, who made the decision to add the question, sit...

Red Wolf Headline Hunters

The latest news out of Texas is that the DNA of a wolf declared extinct in the wild lives on in a Texas pack.I am not surprised.While extinctions are a very serious thing, they are a lot less common than folks would have you believe.In fact, only a few hundred animals have gone extinct in the last 400 years, and most of these are birds endemic to small Pacific islands decimated by rats and feral cats.Today, about as many animals are "rediscovered" as BEING NOT EXTINCT as are declared extinct.P...

Experts Predict New SCOTUS Majority Will Take On Extreme Gerrymandering

The Supreme Court is slated to hear two blockbuster cases involving extreme partisan gerrymandering this spring—the last best chance for the nation’s highest court to take action on this pivotal issue before the 2020 census and once-a-decade redistricting process the following year. With swing vote Anthony Kennedy retired from the bench and Justice Brett Kavanaugh cementing the court’s 5-4 conservative majority, there’s a legitimate fear that their ruling may not institute a fairer system.

All The Rage: Paying To Break Things When You're Stressed

There is something undeniably satisfying about witnessing a demolition — a house of cards toppling, the leveling of a fire-ravaged edifice, or even watching an action movie.

Going the distance (for a given value of distance.)

The U.S. military has a gun cleaning fetish that is a holdover from the days of corrosive primers (and black powder before that.) Boiling water cleaning and "white glove" intolerance for carbon have probably resulted in more guns being cleaned to death than shot to death.In reality, most modern firearms just need lubricant, and even that's to a varying degree. Current polymer-framed guns like the Glock, where the "frame rails" are tiny little tabs with hardly any bearing surface that mostly exis...

Explore sonic inspiration, via this artist’s approach to Novation’s Peak 1.2

Novation packed new sounds – and 43 new wavetables – into an update for their flagship Peak synthesizer. Sound designer Patricia Wolf writes to share how she approached making some of those new sounds. Peak, in case you missed it, has been one of the more compelling new synths in recent years. Novation designed a unique-sounding 8-voice polysynth, melding digital wavetable oscillators with analog processing, per-voice filtering and all-important distortion all over the place.

More notable state clemency developments for the holiday season

In this post a few days ago, I flagged some notable recent clemency grants by Governors in Arkansas and Colorado and Pennsylvania (while also lamenting that Prez Trump has not followed up a lot of big clemency talk with any big clemency action). With the Christmas holiday nudging every closer, I am not surprised (though still pleased and grateful) that Governors in a few more states are using the ink their clemency pens. Here is another round-up of notable new state clemency stories: Colorado: "...

A pet is family no matter where you live, and some homeless shelters are recognizing that

Laura Flores, who shares a van with her Chihuahua, chokes up saying little Gracie is “the reason why I get up in the morning.” Ramona Martinez’s dog, Sadie, is “more than my companion.” “I dont have anything else,” another woman says of her 4-month-old Doberman. The women are homeless; they look to their pets for affection and stability. Until recently, most pet owners hoping to get under a roof had to make a choice: give up your companion or stay on the street. But the need to get a growing num...

State clemency developments during a holiday season still full of (foolish?) hope for clemency boldness from Prez Trump

In this post last week, I noted Prez Trump's tweet talking about how criminal justice reform "brings much needed hope to many families during the Holiday Season."  I stressed that long-promised additional clemency action could provide another means for the President to make families happy and hopeful during this special time of year.  (On that front, it is worth recalling that, as posted here, Prez Trump issued his first commutation of Sholom Rubashkin exactly a year ago today.  His only other c...
