The Miami Herald reports, “the letter all but dares the Justice Department to sue Florida for allegedly violating the 1965 Voting Rights Act and the 1993 National Voter Registration Act.” You can read the full letter here.
We humans have invented a lot of stuff like soap to keep our fingernails clean and nuclear weapons to kill the shit out of other humans. Sometimes I wish we dumb apes were still living in the trees when I see what we are doing to our home planet and ourselves. In the meantime, I follow the biblical admonishment to eat, drink and be merry.
