Florida may now have America's most conservative Supreme Court

Sometimes it sucks to live in Florida



If you’re among the moderate or liberal Floridians happily surprised by Gov. Ron DeSantis’ zeal for environmental protection, his embrace of a more liberal medical marijuana policy or his appointing Democrats to key offices, this may jolt you:

In that same span of two weeks, DeSantis has created what some conservatives are celebrating as the most conservative state Supreme Court in America.

The Republican governor probably has already produced his most important legacy — a 6-1 ardently conservative Supreme Court majority — that will far outlive the eight years he can serve in office.

“Liberals should be weeping after these three (Supreme Court) picks. Now let’s move some litigation,” Republican consultant Brett Doster, an adviser to former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and former Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, crowed on Twitter. It came after DeSantis made his third appointment to the Court on Tuesday — Carlos Muñiz, the former counsel to Pam Bondi and Bush.

Wiki Loves Earth photo winners just announced

Wikipedia is a big part of what we do here, but there’s also the Wikimedia Commons and the millions of free images and other media that are accessible to everyone around the world. In fact, the winners of Wiki Loves Earth were just announced, and we invite you to lose yourself in the beauty of our majestic planet. Like the tens of thousands of people who edit Wikipedia out of pure love of knowledge, the photographers and panelists who selected the best 15 photos did this voluntarily.
