Files Appear to Show Gerrymandering Specialist Unconstitutionally Used Race Data to Draw Voting Maps

quote [ A North Carolina court on Tuesday struck down the state's legislative voting maps, reasoning that the current maps "do not permit voters to freely choose their representative." The court's decision hinged on evidence acquired from the computer records of Thomas Hofeller, the recently deceased GOP operative and godfather of modern-day gerrymandering, who spearheaded the state's efforts to redraw voting maps. ]

Shocking! Shocking I say! Totally unexpected!

Jeffrey Epstein Death: 2 Guards Slept Through Checks and Falsified Records

quote [ The guards did not check on him for three hours, officials said. The disclosures came as the guards and the warden at the jail were removed. ]

Man, poor guards. They must have -really- rough schedules. They should get a union or something going.

Democrats Have Terrible Choices

quote [ Just a collection of amazing comments from our amazing choices going up against the President in 2020. ]

SE should have a built-in "discussion" maker option in the post that auto sets the URL to the URL of the post. :)

This is NOT a Review of Hell's Shadows by Dean Klein - UPDATED - Sci-Fi & Scary

quote [ Hell's Shadows is a 426-page horror novel by Dean Klein, but this is absolutely not a review of his book. ]

Things Got Weird for Stablecoin Tether

quote [ Yesterday evening, the Office of the Attorney General of New York State announced an absolutely bananas lawsuit against Bitfinex and Tether. Bitfinex is a cryptocurrency exchange, and Tether, “which is owned by the same small group of insiders that own and operate Bitfinex,” is the issuer of a cryptocurrency also called Tether (or USDT). That cryptocurrency is a “stablecoin,” meaning that one Tether is supposed to be worth exactly one U.S. dollar, a ratio that is maintained, Tether claims, by keeping one dollar in a bank account for each Tether that it issues. ]

A "wow, that's bananas!" story even if you aren't into crypto stuff.

The Climate Change Paper So Depressing It's Sending People to Therapy

quote [ On average, three people read an academic paper. At least 100,000 have read this—and a lot of them haven't taken it very well. ]

The title is click-bait but the paper is definitely depressing.
