Here are some of the people writing about some of the stuff I wish I had time to write about, for September 23rd from 11:51 to 16:43:
a post-Ferguson world, Americans increasingly doubt the notion of colorblind justice – Today fewer than 4-in-10 (38 percent) of Americans say that blacks receive equal treatment under the criminal justice system.

- Gun nuts meet their match: Why Gabby Giffords isn’t playing nice anymore – Ex-Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is facing criticism for her "mean" gun control ads. There's a very good reason for that
