The Coming GOP Civil War Over Climate Change — We should be so lucky. I was struck by this: Soon after his experience in South Carolina, Emanuel changed his lifelong Republican Party registration to independent. “The idea that you could look a huge amount of evidence straight in the face and, for purely ideological reasons, deny it, is anathema to me,” he says. Hello? You were a Republican? Virtually any GOP position requires precisely that approach.

AotD: Texas. And my sister just moved down there, so my almost 90-year-old mother (who has resisted twenty years of trying to get her to move to be near one of us since my dad died) is no longer off down there by herself. The other three of us are much relieved (and the sister who went seems to be pleased, too).
