19 June 2017
Happy Juneteenth, everybody! Today's A1 seemed to be mostly focused on disenfranchisement, be it in the form of the thousands of children kidnapped by Boko Haram, Homeless Korean immigrants here in our fair city, or factory workers in Grand Rapids, Michigan trying to keep a family afloat on a low-wage job. Still, I don't feel discouraged. There's ways to fix these things (or prevent them from happening in the first place), but it's not gonna happen when we're doing things like letting GOP Senators write sweeping healthcare legislation in secret. We can all agree that that's a shitty idea, right? How much longer is it until the 2018 midterms?
