T. Greg Doucette is the North Carolina litigator who sleuthed out the incredible, bizarre details of the decision of the University of North Carolina's Republican-appointed governors to hand a group of white nationalists $2.5m to build a Confederacy museum.

But that victory statement is not available now, because Stone and the Sons of Confederate Veterans sent a DMCA notice to Dropbox, demanding that the document be removed on the grounds that it was a copyright violation, despite the document being part of a public court record.
Doucette sounds like he's ready to fight.

There are fast-paced card games, and some of them even require enough dexterity for a mini-workout (like Skip-Bo or Snap).

The game is named for the toy that gets […]
