trying hard to live up to their reputation

today the people of mississippi will vote on whether embryos and fetuses are corporations, or something like that. if this passes, brace yourself for all that unregulated citizens united fetus money flooding the state!

oh also, it could inadvertently ban birth control, and criminalize miscarriages. (at least in the imaginary land where the amendment doesn't immediately get blocked by the federal courts). sometimes i feel sorry for mississippi, a state burdened with a reputation for being ignorant and backwards by much of the rest of the country. then there are those other times.
