ok, I lied. I do have one quasi-political link to share from MSNBC:

This is so incredible. State’s rights have gotten a bad rap (deservedly so to some extent, since so many Southern states have misused their sovreignty to oppress individual rights of African Americans in the past) but past abuses don’t justify the current encroachment on state’s sovereignty by the Federal government. I’m glad to see a Governor standing up for their state’s laws, constitution and welfare against an abusive federal government, when it is a truly just cause and not bigotry or stupidity.
