Biden finally figured out that he had to do something about this or else, he may not win re-election. If the DEA does lower it to schedule 3, Biden will win my vote. Bets lots of apps coming for research.

Bill Richardson, a two-term Democratic governor of New Mexico and an American ambassador to the United Nations who also worked for years to secure the release of Americans detained by foreign adversaries, has died. He was 75.

The Richardson Center for Global Engagement, which he founded and led, said in a statement Saturday that he died in his sleep at his home in Chatham, Massachusetts.

“He lived his entire life in the service of others—including both his time in government and his subsequent career helping to free people held hostage or wrongfully detained abroad,” said Mickey Bergman, the center’s vice president. “There was no person that Gov. Richardson would not speak with if it held the promise of returning a person to freedom. The world has lost a champion for those held unjustly abroad and I have lost a mentor and a dear friend.”

I met him once, at a Harkin Steak Fry in 2007. He was very friendly. I felt sorry for him as he and then Senator Biden were the last to speak, and most people left by then. Obama, Clinton, and Edwards were all of the big contenders then.

Good News From Florida For A Change: DeSantis’ Racist Gerrymander Struck Down By Republican Judge

Yesterday was a pretty slow news day— except for one thing: the groups challenging DeSantis’ racist congressional gerrymander, won. Second Circuit Judge J. Lee Marsh, originally appointed to the bench in 2018 by Rick Scott, struck down the map DeSantis used to turn the Florida congressional delegation whiter and more right-wing in clear defiance of the voter-passed Fair Districts Amendment. The ruling— which will be challenged by the Florida racists— would give Blacks in Jacksonville, Tallahassee and Gadsden County an opportunity to elect another Black Member of Congress.

The appeal will come fast and, as we noted last week, it’s likely that a new map will be in effect in time for the 2024 election, when Alan Grayson said that “It has simply been another way for DeSantis to assert dictatorial powers. The Jacksonville-centered African-American Congressional seat was established 30 years ago. DeSantis thought that he could steal it for the GOP, and he did.”

Bernie is on Face the Nation today. I will post a video clip if it appears this afternoon. Thank goodness the regular host is off this Sunday as she is too neoliberal for my taste.
