Mammal Monday

Ondatra zibethicus: muskrat! As busy as the proverbial beaver.Thoreau reveled in calling them “musquash.” (See Geoff Wisner’s collection of HDT on animals.)

Stop me if you’ve heard this one: Senator Susan Collins says the President has assured her he won’t be asking his Supreme Court candidates about Roe v. Wade. Two things: 1) Trump’s record on lying tells us he’ll say ANYTHING to try and get what he wants; and 2) the list he’s using is from the Federalist Society, an organization openly dedicated to transforming the American court system. The people on the list have already been asked about Roe.

Also, Senator Collins seems to think it’s legit for someone — who will in all probability have his case(s) in front of SCOTUS — pick another of the justices.

    Our much-touted “balance of power” between Judiciary, Executive and Legislative branches is tilting dangerously out of balance. Right-wing + right-wing +Conservative = danger.
