Hope for Texas

Well some good news for voting rights on this 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. The DOJ is suing about the Texas Voter ID law, and joining the redistricting lawsuit. Maybe we can save this state after all.

I suppose I'll get on the bandwagon of Wendy Davis for Governor now. It's not that I don't like her, but I'm pessimistic about her chances given how fucked up Texas is. But if Voter ID and redistricting can be fixed, then maybe she and other Texas democrats have a real chance.

In the meantime I'm going to see that Butler movie which is supposed to feature the civil rights movement.
