Mike’s Blog Round-Up

Daily links to great liberal blog posts and other cool stuff!

Lawyers, Guns & Money looks at what else Texas did: stripped voting rights.

The Psy of Life looks at the authoritarian impulse of Texas' actions.

Bonus Track: The Curious Archive explains hilarious medieval illumination.
