"What the Constitution Means to Me" is delightful interactive theater about the US Constitution. The author, Heidi Schreck, earned her college tuition by winning Constitutional debate competitions across the United States and then developed this 2019 prize-winning "hilarious, hopeful, and achingly human show." It's on Amazon Prime and worth watching, especially for her views about feminism, reproductive rights, and amendments to the Constitution.
Some of INCO's postcard writers got to visit with Tessa Scheller last week when she came to thank them for their postcards for her for Clatsop County Commissioner, District 2.

"It's not Republican voters who elect Republican politicians.
It’s Democratic voters who stay home that elect Republicans . . . ."

“The point is that the relative freedom which we enjoy depends of public opinion. The law is no protection. Governments make laws, but whether they are carried out, and how the police behave, depends on the general temper in the country. If large numbers of people are interested in freedom of speech, there will be freedom of speech, even if the law forbids it; if public opinion is sluggish, inconvenient minorities will be persecuted, even if laws exist to protect them.”
 -- George Orwell, "Freedom of the Park"

“For the great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie - deliberate, contrived, and dishonest, but the myth -  persistent, persuasive, and unrealistic. We enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.”
