Today's ostensibly non-political story that's nonetheless political to us: plastic microbeads are in everything. Even toothpaste. So now they're in your water. Open carry moves to... in front of schools. And how do you tell an open carry protester from a maniac? Wait for him to start shooting. Mark Pryor toes the NRA line, but they spend millions to defeat him anyway. What's Mayday PAC doing giving money to anti-reformers? Why the shift away from an assault weapons ban? Explaining away kids' fatal GunFAILs. Witness who reported Ohio WalMart "gunman" turns out to be full of it. Congressional inaction as tacit approval of executive action. Matt Stoller gives us stuff to think about, re: ISIS.
