Note on the new WordPress System: it lets you treat your blog like a real news outlet. In other words, you can get people to susbscribe, and limit what’s viewed by people who do not subscribe. btw, once you decide to use this system, there is no trial period. If you decide you don’t, after all, like to be like The New York Times, who actually charge for the privilege of reading an article, you have to trash the entire post, and begin again. As self is doing right now. Because the article on Voter Suppression is that important.

Allegations of minority voter-suppression are hardly new. They are often . . . hard to prove. Yet Greg Abbott’s action in Texas stands out. On October 1st the Republican governor restricted the number of drop boxes for completed ballots to just one per county. For the 4.7m residents of Harris County, 70% of whom are non-white and liable to vote Democratic, that is a travesty.
Echoing President Donald Trump, Mr. Abbott said this was necessary to prevent voter fraud.
