My jury duty was delayed until Tuesday; we’ll see what happens tomorrow.
Here are some remains of the day:
* SCOTUS by 5-4 vote puts hold on 5th Circuit ruling letting restrictive Texas abortion law go into effect, but actual SCOTUS review of the law is a plunge into the unknown.
* Roy Moore continues jousting with higher courts over marriage equality, claiming Alabama magistrates don’t have to issue marriage licenses for 25 days.
* Puerto Rico governor announces the commonwealth cannot pay $70 billion in debt, threatening municipal bond market.
* At Ten Miles Square, Martin Longman notes that liberals frustrated with big Supreme Court cases like Citizens United aren’t talking about nullification the way conservatives like Bobby Jindal are.
* At College Guide, Daniel Luzer reports that when interns at AFT decided to organize, aha! AFT…cooperated.
* At Republic 3.0, Anne Kim discusses the health care challenge pols don’t like to talk about: long-term care.
And in non-political news:
* “Starve a fever, feed a cold” edict goes back to 16th century.
That’s it for Monday. We’ll close with a classic early Yes song that featured Chris Squire on bass: “Starship Trooper,” from The Yes Album.
