play in states that do not accept the results of legitimate elections?
By Anne Lamott
Many of us who believe in a reality beyond the visible realms, who believe in a soul that survives death, and who are hoping for seats in heaven near the dessert table, also recoil from the image of a high school football coach praying at the 50-yard line.
It offends me to see sanctimonious public prayer in any circumstance but a coach holding his players hostage while an audience watches his piety makes my skin crawl.
We are fighting furiously for womens rights and the planet, and we mean business. We believers march, rally and agitate, putting feet to our prayers. And in our private lives, we pray.
Isnt praying a bit Teletubbies as we face off with the urgent darkness?
Prayer means talking to God, or to the great universal spirit, a.k.a. Gus, or to Not Me. Prayer connects us umbilically to a spirit both outside and within us, who hears and answers. Is it like the comedian Flip Wilson saying, Im gonna pray now; anyone want anything?
A long but worthwhile read.
Democrats dont have the votes right now for major Supreme Court reform. But if they pick up seats, they could have many options.

If the next Supreme Court term begins in October could a decision in favor of the independent state legislature theory come soon enough to affect the 2022 midterm election outcomes?
