    Good on them – this law is a total disaster.

    This story is a little off. Public testimony is over. Texas Senator Wendy Davis has launched a 13-hour filibuster to try to kill the bill. If she can talk until midnight the special session ends and the bill dies. There are a lot of people in the Texas capitol today to support Wendy. Here’s a liveblog and summary of what’s going on: http://www.texastribune.org/2013/06/24/dems-approach-abortion-victory-special-session-wan/

    It’s so weird: I was sure on Sunday it was 2013, but according to this and SCOTUS gutting the VRA, it’s 1964.

    Don’t tell me the Texas Occupy movements didn’t teach us something. We lost Tranquility Park, but took The Capitol. Fair Trade.
