Supreme Court

‘Trove’ is a compilation of stories and articles that have captured my attention and compelled me to read on.

This week we explore a lengthy piece taking us through the origins of the Citizens United case up to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision. Next a couple of Mother Jones stories – one about military veterans, exposed to poisoned water at their base, and how their illnesses may help greatly advance breast cancer research; the second story, a tragic and compelling look at one steel plant’s dangerous history and the systemic concerns in the industry’s safety system. To finish things up, Diane Ravitch continues her aggressive defense of the public school system, countering reports and officials who find it to be a threat to national security.

Happy reading!
